As I Lie Down
As I lie down to sleep there is an eagerness down in my heart.
It's the knowing that you'll be there, waiting in the realm of my dreams.
I feel you before my eyes even close, and snatches of sleep can start.
I see you now as you move towards me in the swirling mist, my heart bursting at the seams.
As I lie down to sleep, the morning comes too soon.
I'm awake now, but can still feel your caress.
Your voice faintly beckons me to stay.
I hear it now as I go on with my day.
I hurry through it so I can once again answer to your behest.
