Lucky are the couples
who make love with their bodies
                   create poems with their minds
                                      generate magic with their souls
They look at each other with affection
          touch each other with kindness
                   inspire each other with gentleness
                                      bring out the best in each other
                                                in the form of creativity and spirituality and sexuality
Even after they die
          their art will live
                   to inspire others
                             and bring out the best in them
O, My Love!
          are we one of those lucky couples?
