Brushing softly against me in the cool of the night.
The smell of roses drifting down to rest upon my brow.
There, that touch of lightness swiftly turning to red.
I hold always in my arms with only the thought of those soft petals against my skin.
You slowly spin above my life's reality.
Taking me places I have never even dreamed.
My life passes before me and I want none of it but this moment in time.
This moment only with the soft brushing of your red lips.
Love oh yes this is love...
