while you sleep

While my own sweet princess is fast asleep
I softly and gently stroke her long hair
So easing away every pain and care
As her precious spirit, I safely keep
She dreams of me and the light of the moon
Walking together on a secluded beach
Always the closeness yet still out of reach
As like all the best dreams, it ends too soon

Within her thoughts, the sweet memory stays
Dreams that will linger and remain a while
She suffering sometimes, so sweet the pain
In the distance always our music plays
Sharing gifts to make the two of us smile
Until the next time, together again
