Come, stay with me til ‘morrow, this night alone as one,
This our little getaway, let all the others shun.
What holds for us, come morning, the waking of sun,
Will Love survive our dreaming, or will all become as none.
Find Me in the golden light, as the world, to darkness, sleep,
Among the twinkling stars of night, as dreams, draw ever deep.
Up upon the crescent moon, or as far, the cosmos sweep,
Yet ever close to you, my love, beneath your blanket, peep.
What indeed is paradise, except to be with you,
To have your tender kisses, hugs, so warm and true.
Lying in your gentle arms, the sky, its brilliant hue,
Watch the slowly setting sun, the writ of love renew.
Pieces of me with pieces of you,
Pieces apart, now one, what was two.
Who would have fathomed, love, ever true,
Yet bound us together, the broken, anew.
Let not a thousand break us, a promise, say, “We will”,
Let not the withering summer, or deep, the winter’s chill.
Let not the fading music, the forest, darkness, still,
Let not the years diminish, till love, its hour fulfil.
Come read my thoughts, and search my feelings, my every move and glance,
Every feign and every breath, they all whisper, “Take your chance.”
Forget yourself just for the moment, stay with me, through this dance,
Then yield once more to wondrous bliss, a kiss, what sweet romance.
A dose of deadly poison, to draw me up above,
Away from life, its hurting, release this wounded dove.
Flying, fainting, fading, no more, from all thereof,
Until the one should find me, who’d plant a kiss of love.
