Our world of love exists in Guarded Shadows
I feel confused for us both, it is a a growing agony for all
When two hearts have to hide in plain view
In and out of the shadows like Juliet and Romeo; so says the wise man.
We stand in our own darkness
Blinded by silent words that say nothing
Slowly I take your hand into mine
What is not fair about this touch between two; NOTHING I SAY!
Move closer to me
To feel the warmth of my body next to yours
Feel the tenderness of my hands as I caress your wanting flesh
It speaks of love beyond the spoken word divine
I will whisper softly of the love I desire
I want to taste the flesh flavor as you take my lead
Along the nape of your sensual neck
I will speak of how I need you as our bodies dance in the dark
Out of the shadows and into the love lights
Keep your eyes on the lonesome sparrows
Gathering high atop the trees branches
Composed in the Guarded Shadows
We need to make a choice for us this day
To be hidden yet another night on and on my love
Shall we spread our wings into the light?
Where the freedom of rich beautiful colors radiating our love be true
Our world of love no longer exists in Guarded Shadows
Everyday we experience freedom to love
When the blanket of darkness covers the Sparrows tonight
Listen high atop the trees, the Sparrow chatter not
They whisper, In Guarded Shadows...
