I watch you sleeping peacefully
As you are lying there.
I long to touch you just one time,
And yet, I do not dare.
For touching you would waken you,
And then youâ€™d have to go.
So Iâ€™ll just watch you sleeping, dear.
Itâ€™s selfish, yes, I know.
I wonder as youâ€™re sleeping dear,
Just what youâ€™re dreaming of.
I hope Iâ€™m there, as I am here,
Prepared to share my love.
