Sweaty palms, winded breaths, I jolt awake,
And unexpectedly you were there, without a moment to forsake.
My eyelids were heavy as you sung smooth and lowly,
And I didn't hesitate to move near you, and pulled the covers slowly.
Your hair, ears, nose and mouth were a lovely sight to see,
Especially, in this very moment since they all belong to me,
You're my comfort, home and sight for sore eyes,
And I can imagine you -just you- when I gaze up towards the finite sky.
"Darling, it was a dream," I hear a light voice say,
But the nightmare of twisted faces behind my visage refuses to decay,
The humming continues from their voice in a soft tune,
As the static in the radio falls like the sun in the afternoon.
Then, I had a thought as all the pain residing in me subsided.
When my heart's no longer heavy,
And your throat hurts from singing along,
I will rest my head on your softening chest,
With your heartbeat as my new and eternal song.
