    You're so small you fit right into the circle of my arms
    I rest my fingers on your shoulder blades
    I am not afraid that they will cut me, you are my safety
    I rest my head on your shoulder so my nose is buried
    Deep in the grace of your hair that curls around your neck
    So I can inhale you, the dusky scent of enchanted kisses
    I breathe you in and lull myself into a dreamlike state
    The warmth of your skin glows through mine
    Seeping through the pain and sorrow to the core
    I lift my hand and run my fingers through your hair
    Watching my fingers chase the strands, tears come to me
    You squeeze me tighter, you sense the wrench in my mood
    Husshh, Husshh, you moan softly, your breath in my ear
    Your name in my heart, hushh..
    You console me, but then, you never did understand..
    You're beautiful, I whisper back, softly and with the tone of..
    Well a broken child I suppose, thats how overpowering it is
    On these hot autumn nights when I have you wrapt in me
    Beautiful and vulnerable, sometimes sleeping,
    Sometimes you fall asleep so softly as I stroke your hair
    And memorise your features, my princess,
    And you don't believe me when I tell you you are beautiful
    I cannot silence your protestations or console your fears
    Husshh.. Husshh.. I gaze over you this night
    As the setting sun streaks over you in lines and circles
    I follow each golden arrow and kiss your warm skin
    And you smile in your saintly sleep, I love you..

    I love you

    and how close yet far apart we can feel in the same moment. (You made me wistful...)
