Just One Night
For just one night keep me in your heart.
Be so kind as to give me the gift of love
I so long to hold and let it be a part
Of my whole being for just one time.
I know you have another path to follow,
Even though our spirits often connect,
It adds beauty to my life and soul,
Yet there are times I so long for your love.
For one night I wish it were mine
That gentle love I sense within you,
As I slumber in dreams so divine,
To awake with the essence of your love.
I can almost feel the touch of your hand,
Your strong shoulder to lay my head on.
For just one night I will dream my dream.
To you I so want to give love, to belong.
