Within the Shade of Slumber

Evening fog crept slowly 

O’er the dim lit avenue 

As I looked out the window 

Of my solitary room

Waiting for the night to fall

So dreams might come again

Hoping sleep could wash away 

My loneliness and pain

I touched your face again my love

Inhaled your fragrant essence

I took your breath inside of me

And oh the effervescence 

That filled my mind with wonder

And sent me in a whirl

I flew with you beyond the moon

As twinkling stars unfurled

A carpet for our footsteps

You took my hand we danced

In the iridescent fog

And oh the sweet romance

Within the shade of midnight

Oh the taste of bliss

That reverie had given me

For wanting of your kiss
