Richard W. Reith

IF GOD

If God would grant me the power,
I would give the moon to you.
For you are my moon and all my stars,
My sun, and the morning dew

If God would grant me the power,
I’d stop the world, give endless time
To lay abed, make love with you,
And every erotic mountain climb

If God would grant me the power
from the hills my love to proclaim,
I’d let loves fire consume my soul
And shift the stars to spell your name

If God would grant me the power
I would spend a million years
Laying in your body’s folds
As my spirit to yours adheres.
