I held you in the quiet still of night,
Our limbs entwined amidst warm shadows deep;
I felt your touch when stars denied us light,
Your soft sweet perfume breath upon my cheek.
What tender depths we reached in calm caress,
Our naked souls immersed in unity;
As passion’s fire smoldered in my breast
I reached my hand across eternity.
We shared our hopes and fears in whispered thought
And drowned our cares in silence, soft, serene;
We cherished every touch each moment brought,
Then slipped away into a sea of dreams.
My dear sweet friend these thoughts of you live on
To warm my heart long after you are gone.
