She is the night that comes to me
And before I succumb, I pray
She closes my eyes to everything else
And unto her I give myself away
She is the night, and I am the day

She offers me comfort like a warm caress
Felt not on skin, but within the mind
I look forward to sleeping inside her
And losing sense of measured time
She that is different, yet of like mind

She is beauty that darkness brings
Wrapping me wholly, swallows the light
She tends to my darkened garden
Upon the bed of second sacred sight
She is the giver of dreams, she is the night

And unto her I give myself away
=================================

She offers me comfort like a warm caress
Felt not on skin, but within the mind
I look forward to sleeping inside her
And losing sense of measured time
She that is different, yet of like mind

She is beauty that darkness brings
Wrapping me wholly, swallows the light
She tends to my darkened garden
Upon the bed of second sacred sight
She is the giver of dreams, she is the night
====================================

Oh man ...oh damn..........
just damn...........

"She offers me comfort like a warm caress

I like every word, but this struck a cord in me, beautiful
