A Late Night Tryst


I robbed the night of my love,
I stole her from the clog of dreams
Far into the quiet woods with birds
Beside a chilly running stream

The moonlight revealed her dazzling face
So gleaming than a starlit night sky
As she lay cuddled in my arms,
Her soft lips whispered her heart to me

Her smile stills my tempest
Her words are like music to my ears
I wish that moment was eternal
That she'd be in my arms forever
