Within Her Breath

Within Her Breath

I heard upon the desert wind,
a song that sounds so sweet.
It lives within this dry parched land,
that lays beneath my feet

It grows within the desert palm,
and shines within its sun.
A song that reaches deep inside,
that’s not for everyone.

A song I see in eyes so bright,
and in that flowing hair.
A song that creeps into the heart,
and rides the desert air.

For if I stop and feel the wind,
I know that I will hear.
The softness of your bated breath,
as I am drawing near.

I’ll hear your passion on the wind,
and touch your gentle hand.
I’ll ride between those swaying palms,
upon the desert sand.

For I will pick the fruit of love,
that lives within the palm.
And hear within your gentle breath,
a loving desert psalm.
