Lie down with me and take your time;
Wrap my longing in your smile.
Cleanse these tears with rains of kisses;
Bring me peace and stay a while.
Breathe upon me gentle love
And warm me up with passionate sighs;
Bless my skin with tender lips
And hold me safe with no goodbyes.
Smile my worries all away,
And chase down every nagging ghost;
Hold my hand and love me, longing;
In me, be happy; in me, engrossed.
Send these dreadful phantoms aching,
Chasing them to midnight black;
Bring me lantern light to guide me;
Hold me close and don’t look back.
Sing my heart a lovely song,
Of intimate whispering, ancient stories;
Hold this heart, lay it to rest,
At peace in your eternal glories.
Lover, softly, hold me closer,
‘Til I sleep within your arms;
Please hold me safely from the nightmares;
Keep me safe from history’s harms.
Snatch me up from earthly dangers,
Leave my terrors far beneath;
Bring me light and bring me dawning,
Bring me joy in rainbow wreath.
When I fly beyond the stars
Enveloped in your coaxing eyes,
We shall see the new day rising,
Golden lace shines in the skies.
Angel wings have fallen power
When we face the realms of might;
We shall see that day dawn strongly,
Love is present: our delight.
