I want nothing more

                                      Monet's Garden, Giverny, France


What is happiness?
It is bright morning sunshine
A kiss on the lips

Birth of your baby
Surely it's children's laughter
Trust in their bright eyes

That letter of love
The way we held our warm hands
Walking by your side

The games that we played
The fresh scent of the garden
With the hum of bees

It's all these and more
Not experienced alone
But you by my side

Togetherness rules
To lay on your sweet breasts
And want nothing more
