Your hand held tenderly within my own.
We steal with clumsy adoration,
Through an amateurish unknown.
Graceful eyes that flicker shut,
Into a sleep that tugs you from shore.
And in my arms, we’re carried away,
By feelings too fierce to ignore.
My dearest friend, divine and unparalleled,
One day you won’t wake up alone.
When facades slough off like heavy garments,
When at last we’ll be at home.
Darling, if ever I were in love,
If ever, than certainly it is with you.
For you are my greatest miracle,
And far too good to be true.
