You Beside Me

from by Oakes & Smith



I wake with you beside me
Still sleeping silently
I watch the light flow in
And fall upon your skin
I brush my fingers gently through your hair
And the breeze blows through the window
And I feel you head to toe
And the cloud-bed of your skin
Begins to pull me in
And makes me want to sleep inside of you

You wake up
Your knowing eyes open
And take me in naked
And I can't hide
And with you beside me
I don't want to hide anymore

Inside this soft, warm, sunlit womb
I let my love surround you
I feel it all around the room
I lay down, lost & found with you beside me

I wake with you beside me
Sleeping contentedly
With my head upon your chest, I lay
And listen to your breath, as day
Is drifting through the curtain like a cloud

And I watch as you lay dreaming
And I hear the sparrows sing
And it makes me feel so sure
So safe and so secure
Waking with my arms surrounding you
