Profound Dreams Soothe My Soul
He looked down at me, a question in his eyes,
Standing so close, I wanted to hug him to my heart,
Without him saying a word I knew the answer,
Yes, I can and do, with all my heart and soul,
With every part of my being, for who you are,
For all I see in you,
For all my life and beyond.
Never before have I felt such deep emotion,
Or loved as much as I did right then,
It is a never ending love, it holds me up,
Keeps me strong, for it abides within
The deepest part of my soul,
Where only he has touched.
How can I tell him, when only in dreams,
I see him asking if I love him whole,
And I give the words of my heart,
Does he know within his own heart,
My words are sincere, my love is deep,
It is in his keep, there it abides,
In any storm of life or all our imperfections.
For the gift of love heals wounds,
Makes all perfect in the eyes of beauty,
To love him is a blessed peace within me,
I know it is right that I love him,
Even though I know not the future,
I just live each moment of life’s flow,
For profound dreams soothe my soul.
