In those special moments where dreams meet reality and new dreams begin

My soul stirs, my mind begins to wake still foggy with the night’s abstract illusions

I hear you breathing that slow, steady sleep breathing

I reach out and touch your hand

I feel you stir

The desire to be close to you overwhelms me

As I slide across the bed toward you…you innately sense my longing for you and 
your body begins to be aroused

The passion within me ignites

I want to be as close as two people can possibly be

I long to give myself to you

Softly I touch you, your body responds

Freely I give myself over to you…opening to you…welcoming you…holding 
nothing back

We are entangled, interwoven, meshed together as we consummate our love

Birds sing, the sun rises on a new day, animals play

The world is a symphony and we are its conductor

Directing the grandest, most sensuous love song ever written

The instruments play to our every move

Choruses raise their voices in one glorious crescendo as we explode in each 
others embrace

Softly we cradle each other, basking in the afterglow of our love

Quietly we whisper

A new dream begins
