To be a sentinel in the darkest
silence of your presence.
Soft release, a mist of hope
inward drawn as essence.
So the breaths of lovers curl
in moonlight cast aglow,
Melodic dreams to blend and purl,
a sweet diminuendo.
Wrapped in night, as you sleep,
soul stirs and comes untied,
To lead your dreams to wander far,
my heart close by your side.
