Kiss you while you sleep, my
And tell you all those quiet things
You've heard so much, those words
I fear begin to bore with repetition.
Whisper while you sleep, my love,
That I am yours, that we have found each other.
Remind you that I shiver when you touch me...
Acknowledge that you create all my dreams.
Miss you while you sleep, my
I pause, recalling memories like jewels...
Anticipating times of deepest beauty,
For I will be beside you when you wake.
