    She is my woman; beautiful her; dancing in solitude to love drums
    Sounds akin to those of my beating heart in counts of two
    My name is forever written in her mind and soul
    As she sleeps, she compels me to give myself to her completely

    I sleep within the soft boundaries of this sensual soul sister
    Charmingly elegant; she peacefully rests in her silent exhales
    Thoughts of me; the one who gives her heartfelt pleasure
    Shhh…watch her sleep in her beatific womanly grace

    He is my man; my soulmate; my lover; my friend
    With our bodies intertwined, we become one entity
    Love creatures of habit; tranquil beasts with no burdens
    As he sleeps, he appears appreciating and content that I am his

    I sleep within the strong confines of this beautiful black brother
    Safe and secure in his touch; carefully watched and protected
    Loved a million times to infinity-then loved some more
    Shhh…watch him sleep in his accommodating manly poise

    I am your man

    and

    I am your woman

    Our hearts belong to no other

    Our mutual mental essence is like a pulsating love vein
    Vibes flow like passion's blood; comforting and sustaining us
    As we sleep, we replenish our love reserves to overflowing

    We sleep inside ourselves and hold each other gently and sure
    The comfort remains there in believing we share the same lifeline
    Strengthened by this connection; our bond is pure; our union is true
    Shhh…watch us sleep and experience what love is and how to love
