Once Upon a Night . . 

That night, long ago . . 

I think I was drunk on you,

Not on drink.

Your presence rendered me delirious,

Floating on clouds, heaven sent

Yet I felt more real than ever,

More present, wholly present

In your presence . . 

In the here and now, with you

That night long ago . .
