As I Watch You Sleep

As I watch you sleep
My love so deep
I lounge at your feet
My longing so sweet
My lust complete
Overwhelming heat

I can’t believe you’re here
I have to fight this fear
That you will not be near
When I wake, my dear

Please open your eyes
Oh how time flies
Oh how love dies
Oh how closeness lies

Your body is here
I see and feel it near
But my eyes tear
As your soul leaves

I can’t keep your body
But I am not ready
To part with you really
As my heart grieves
