Stars are brighter tonight, twinkling
In the darkness of a new moon.
Orion's belt enchants my impassioned heart,
As my thoughts of you soar
In a dimension devoid of Time's constraints.
Let me feel the warmth of your strong arms
wrapped 'round me as we breathe in
The scent of night blooming jasmine.
You are my summer nights—
In my dreams of us on cool cotton sheets
While Bach serenades us
In rainbows of ribbons~
In a symphony of sounds~
Your skin glistens,
And I am lost in love.
