One poem I like particularly is The Kiss.  To quote the first verse

Most of all in the night, suddenly feeling
desperately alone I awoke, forgetting for the
moment as I surface through the clouds of a
dream.  Forgetting that my mate lay next to me,
my mate sleeping beside me... I turned to face
her suddenly, and in that one desperate second of
loneliness I turn to hold her fast but firm in my arms as if a
thousand years away and in that one desperate
second I rushed to seize her as if I had returned
home from a desperate voyage.
