About Your…

0466_SVENDSEN

Arms…
Warm, firm, perfect-
ly suited to fit
around my body; to
hold me.

Hands…
Strong, soft, gentle
touch from the palms
pressed to mine and
squeezing.

Fingers…
White, smooth, loving
touch sends sparks through
my skin. Blood turns
To fire.

Eyes…
Deep, warm, smiling,
sweet; Holds my gaze,
for all my earth-
ly days.
