In the darkest of the night
when I lay me to bed
in the temptest of my thoughts,
and the skip of my beating heart
I see you.
If I have a measure of life
tis through the beauty all around me
when all is set and done.
And when I recline into my shelled existence
all I want is you.
If I have a measure of regret
it is the time I wasnt near you
the moments that passed me by
while you sat all alone
and I did nothing about it
except stare at you.
if I see you, if all i want is you,
if all I breathe and eat is you
I hope to god you see me
cause it will be a dark day
when me and my temptest thoughts
are left to be
in the surreptitious slumber
that is my affection for you.
