    Soothe you
    Ease you
    If the essence from
    my thoughts can
    appease you, make it so
    Let me be your blanket
    this time
    Wrap you up in comfort
    sublime
    Make you sigh
    a million sighs
    while the darkness
    of your heart cries
    shedding the residue
    of sorrowful goodbyes
    while continuing to
    welcome anew
    all the goodness life
    has in store for you
    Let the warmth of every
    fiber of my being be
    a sedative, setting
    your mind completely free
    Lay your head on your pillow
    close your eyes baby and know
    this too shall pass my darling
    now and forever, I love you so...

    Love is in the air this evening, and not a day too soon.

    Loving this warm peace!
