I've never met my paramour
But I have seen her face before.
She comes to me on dreamy nights
Thru my heart's wide open door.
Her voice, at times, so distant seems,
Like hidden thoughts I can't retrieve.
I wonder how to keep her near
Safe inside my make believe.
If she would stay till daylight breaks,
So we could love for lover's sake,
My morning lips won't have to taste
The bitterness of being awake.
