Lay back and close your eyes my love,
rest your head upon my chest
listen to the rhythmic whispers
of the heart your own has blessed.
Feel my fingers scribe a lullaby,
in feathered touch on satin skin
where every word on silken shivers
travel to the soul within.
Then, as to sleep, your body fades
to rest within the dreams you seek
I’ll wrap my arms around your waist
and place a kiss upon your cheek.
And on your ears, three words I’d share
in whispers pure and true
until our eyes meet once again
my darling “I miss You”
