This song came as a middle of the night gift.

Deep in this softly moonlit night we awoke to find
Our love's sweet expression unfolding of its own accord
A touch in gentle sleepiness, a fingertip and a pressing lip
The kindness of our bodies speaking softly in the dark.

Our love began so tentative, a smiling eye, a voice softspoken
Touching in a way our lives had never quite been met
A quiet grave acceptance of a truth within each other
The meeting of two people,man and woman, for all time.

So in the night our love unfolds, your body is akin to mine
Another half once left behind in generations long ago
To finally come together in a silent true immersion
The natural culmination of a love we can't define.

And this loving is a drawing close, a tuning in and opening
Until one perfect moment - but how can it be expressed?
A receiving, an enfolding, as I cradle you within my loins
Within my heart, within my soul, you are my own true love.

Deep in this softly moonlit night we awoke to find
Our love's sweet expression unfolding of its own accord
A touch in gentle sleepiness, a fingertip and a pressing lip
The kindness of our bodies speaking softly in the dark.
