Are you awake?
 

A lover's light, a subtle glow

A candle here at my elbow

A nudge, a hand that strayed my way

Lips that whisper 'Are you awake?'

 

A slip awry, a 'Hello' squeeze

No pretending now to be asleep

No play-acting, no shame, no pride

What's yours is mine in candlelight

 

Sleep disturbed for want of love

Might be too late it's two o'clock?

But no, the hour is never late

For lucky lips 'Are you awake?'
