Here I Stand

Here I stand!
The soft wind blows in my face;
I long to be in your warm embrace.
I need to be held in your arms
And to surrender to your charms.
Now, alone I stand!
We may be away and apart,
But you are near in my heart.
In my mind's eye your smiles
Have closed up the many miles.
But, alone I stand!
How I yearn to be where you are,
But now the miles are many and far.
I remember when it was better -
We were in love and together.
Yes, here I stand!
April 8, 1968
