Each night I close
In my dreams it is you I see,
Your body next to mine belongs,
But your presence is far from me.
I awake in the mornings,
You are on my mind,
You occupy every thought,
It is your face I define.
God blessed us in the beginning,
You are mine and I belong to you,
Love grown in sweetness dwells,
Cherished deep in our hearts so true
You will return in time to me,
Duties fulfilled soon I thus pray,
In my dreams I cling to you,
Lord please keep harm at bay.
I see you in my dreams yet again,
You are the lifeblood of my being,
It is you that makes my life whole,
Through your love I am enduring.
Keep me close my precious one,
In dreams come to me tonight,
Let your love traverse the miles,
In your arms please hold me tight.
I long for the time you return,
My dreams can lay at rest,
When I lay down upon our bed,
We will be together in love so blest.
