We sit together in the secluded shadows,
Feeling the cool reflections of the moon melt across your face.
I am so close I can feel the gentle murmur of your flesh
And the secret whispers of your heart close the gap between us.
We hold the comforting silence for a moment,
Then the whispers rise and fall with our breath.
Outside that rain falls softly on the sleeping grass
And clouds move across the face of the moon.
I look up, seeing the darkness of night turn to the grey of dawn
And I feel you waking in my arms.
A flower wakes up and stretches its stamen to the rising sun
Hoping to catch love on the morning breeze
I reach out my hand and trace the beauty of your hair,
Then you open your eyes and smile at me.
