I kiss you goodnight, every night.
I hold you in my dreams.
Beauty's angel, dancing in white,
As all of Heaven gleams.
Your voice sings soft, a lullaby.
Cradled in song, I sleep.
Slowly whisked away, by and by,
You are my hope to keep.
I face the world alone by day...
All thought lingers to you.
Your smile, your touch, your every way
Of giving love so true.
I share the gifts you've given me,
Emotion, voice, and heart.
But I will never completely -
Be whole while we're apart.
We're kindred souls, each other's half,
This we will always be.
Fate tonight may keep me from your laugh,
But not your Destiny.
I could not love except where Death
Was mingling his with Beauty's breath -
Or Hymen, Time, and Destiny
Were stalking between her and me.
