Am I dreaming?

Am I dreaming?
I who have slumbered still in the night
As a vision of my destiny was painted inside mine eyes

I smell the sweet skin
I feel the fine hair as if silk were spun for it
I hear the gentle voice speak my name

Speak my name and my heart races in excitement
The butterflies flutter inside me
My fever rises still

The touch I feel soothes and excites me still
More comforting than the bed I lay in is thy touch
Warming me like the July sun on my skin

Thy kiss bathes me in love
Like the island seas in summer
I am cleansed and aroused by it’s wave of emotion

I want to take you
Deeper into my dreams
And keep you

Am I dreaming?
Then promise me this, my love….
…That you will never let me awaken
