You Lay Waiting Naked On The Bed

I’ve stripped away the faded strings
from your lovely neck and body
You look vulnerable now
your centre exposed to my gaze

I gently rub your alluring curves
to wipe away the traces of 
previous caresses and excesses
and I make you glow

I adorn your smooth form
with bright new silver and gold
You look enticing and beautiful 
full of passionate promise

I sense you waiting for my hungry arms 
to hold your gleaming body
and touch your waiting neck
with my trembling fingers

I take you in my arms at last
and we renew our special intimacy
You sing anew, bright, clear and confident
aware of your power over me

I fall in love with you all over again
and vow to replace your strings more often
To polish your body every time I play
my beautiful sweet guitar
