I Taste Your Essence by Ryter Roethicle Poet's Garret I taste your essence on my lips I sense you blowing on the wind Still feel you at my fingertips And see you smiling in my mind. At heavenly dust a passion grips Each night with dusk I feel a kind Of bond with you of honeyed sips And see you smiling in my mind. Soul and body freely flies anew My will unlocks and love unbinds A freer feeling of loving with you And see you smiling in my mind. I taste your essence on my lips And see you smiling in my mind.
