It was surreal, when I looked into your eyes. A flash of light, a tiny glint
And I couldn’t help smiling at your smirk - the arched curling of your lips.
I felt a spark light up - like under the open sky the fire crackles upon striking flints
Towering over, your shadow engulfs me; I feel protected in that eclipse.
It seems like a reverie, my fingers entangled in yours
How you play with the curls of my hair and trace my face with your hand
Holding me tight like a blanket; I can sense our auras merge
I just keep praying, for the sake of us, that these nights never end.
Morning is still a few hours away; I assure myself in the dark side
But fading away with the moonlight, you disappear with the first sunbeam
I wish I could hold on to you, on the beach we’d lay aside
In all the years of our love, I wish you stayed beyond my dream.
