you with your breasts
                             and body
have become my bounty,
                              your smile
and laughter
                the gift of the gods,
your joy
            the delight of my memory,
your beauty
               the freshness of my senses.

love, let us merge
                          beyond the moment,
let us outlast time,
                            let us caress each other
until there are no more cares,
                                          live beyond
the limits,
           where the gods play,
the plenitude
                 of your presence
making you my goddess,
                              Aphrodite
sprung from the depths
                              of the sea
of ceaseless feeling,
                             rapturous thought
my gift to you,
                   my offering on your altar.
