Hold me close, hold me tight, hold me together with all your might
Watch me long, sing your song, stay with me throughout the night
Caress my cheek, unveil my mystique, bright shine on me your light
Lay bare my soul, take care my heart, and send every fright to flight
For I belong to you belonging to me and this is our sweet sung song
In Your eyes I can dream one thousand dreams
Streaming from the subconscious of my mind
To bind me to you bound to me for all to see
And to be mesmerized forever in my endeavor
To love you as much as you love me
Above all the world’s fray as we play
And I sink into your eyes where lies my peace
Take me far above and away into another day
Along the contour of the hope-filled flyway
To stay afloat among the clouds above the fray
Where peace reins supreme over all disarray
And I will love you forever and ne’er disobey
And the wind whispers your name,
And the oceans spread your fame,
And the stars your glories exclaim,
And you set all of my heart aflame
With your love from above
Fiery radiant heavenly dove
As this wind whispers your name
Red hot fire burning that does not consume,
Plumes of thick smoke to heaven perfume;
You envelope my self oh-so totally naturally,
To remain any time apart from you is agony;
So come sweet lover of my life supernaturally
Welcome to the ride nowhere, somewhere around the corner,
Bound for some new world of fantasy as the whistle sounds,
Eerie looking ahead to make your bed in the nether lands,
Or with bands of nomads on desert plain to sustain living,
Believing there is more uptrack, but little in your haversack,
As the journey into eternity is a neverending bending reality,
What you see thru the glass as it all passes by in banality,
A totality of new abnormality in an endless dimensionality
Ziggurats tower high above the world of diplomats and bureaucrats,
Above the clouds of earthen concerns of loud crowds of plutocrats,
Above republicans, democrats, and dealers in their corporate habitats,
Reaching up to heavenly borders where gods reside and angels abide,
Far from the clamor of dramatic glamour with no enamor, no upside,
And will we have to descend from this place we cannot comprehend
But love for the peace it affords to bind our chords to the world again?
Beauty speaks to beauty in musical harmony of muses
So sing to me sweet songs of serenity for heart’s security
And let me live in your love among lovely children carefree
Never ceasing relentless search for peace among peaceful people
With no dagger more dangerous that kind words and an open heart
So my departure is ne’er depressed in descending into such a scene
That I might live, too, in more than sight of paint on cold canvass
If you will but sing songs of serenity for such son as I am
Do I hear your sweet nightly songs?
Am I wrapped tightly in your arms?
Did you take me mightily by force of passion?
Did you press me excitedly against your love?
Am I rightly breathing poetry for you?
Am I more than slightly pleasing to you?
Could I be more tightly bound to you than I am now?
And he’ll keep me warm and safe tonight against this unholy, frozen blight,
Frightening though it be for me, tightening of the throat, and face whitening,
You can trace the lines of fear of things far and near, and in my heart hear terror,
Except for the wings that cover me, bringing calm peace, singing serenity,
Giving me new identity in an absurd outpouring of love, mercy and grace.
