One More Leap

I want one more run at love.
One more leap.
One more time for my heart to soar
when she enters the room.
Just once more
to have that thrill at the slightest touch.
One more moment of bliss.
Remember bliss?
I do.
Just as I remember too many things.
Too many years; too many miles.
My feet too firmly held
by more than mere gravity.
One more time.
One more time
but only in my dreams.
