Treasure Island

Fidelity


And in the midnight hours of my heart
when sun gives way to moon
and crystal stars,
when roses turn away
and dim lights find,
a way to live beneath my eyes and hide,
I hold you to my soul and in I breathe,
your mystery,
and love's complexities.
With not a word to stumble
from my lips,
we watch a world's eternity that lived
in shadows, as we lay in fire light.
Holding fast to this,
our only night,
as I will be a dream by next sunrise.
And on without you, I live not
a worthy life.
Until, again, your lips
find my own
I'd live to die most faithful,
yet alone.
