The silhouette of his love stands wrapped in silk and moonlight.
Her lines of perfect creation show with the warm glow by the window.
Their eyes meet with desire, a gaze that is locked together for what seems to be forever.
A smile forms on her seductive lips as the evening breeze plays with her hair’s tips.
In his mind a soft voice he does find, “I will always love you, you are mine.”
Blinking once to free his tears accompanying the ache in his heart.
With a smile he lets her be, his midnight lover’s reverie remembering her the way she’s meant to be.
In his mind a voice set free, “I love you, why do you leave?”
He closes his eyes to return to sleep, a hope in his heart for a peaceful dream.
Returning to rest with an ache in his chest, for it has only been a month since she’s passed.
