Lake Como

By Tom Squitieri

Our love from afar perhaps today
As we wait for tomorrow
I sit at Lake Como 
and will wait for you.
I sail on the water
And slice through the waves
Eager to reach the shore
The firm of land
The cove of your arms
The spray from the water
Still on my face
Lake Como is any place
We are together
Where the fresh love
Of nature and anticipation
Join
Invigorates my smile
Stirs my heart
Charges my body
Demands that we are one
So we comply
