Dear My Love
It is you who I shall love on bleak winter mornings.
It is your eyes I want to see before I rest.
Your smile I shall see when I awake.
Your voice is the one that will melt my damaged soul.
A glimmer of light in your eyes is enough to intoxicate me with love.
It is your chest I shall lay my head and close these weary eyes.
If just for a night, it is you that I shall love.
The love my be naught, but love it is.
A one sided romance that never shall be.
But when I close these eyes you’re all I see.
I don’t sleep at night, because you don’t lie next to me.
