Larry Kimbrough 1949 (Birmingham, Al)

I always meet her late at night;
I feel her touch and it's oh so right.
Her hair smells of the sweetest perfume;
The atmosphere charged as she enters the room.

We embrace and out passions rise;
Not a word spoken except with our eyes.
Our loving will be so special again;
She as my woman, I as her man.

I can see heaven in her lovely face;
Her easy smile makes my heart race.
I will love her forever again tonight;
And surrender my all without a fight.

I hold my babe so tender and close;
And express my love to this heavenly ghost.
But then as a mist she fades away;
Please let her return again today.

I know there's happiness waiting near;
But losing my angel is what I fear.
Oh who is this sweet lady of mystery;
That can capture my heart and set me free.

Let me touch her, give my heart life;
Sharing the future as husband and wife.
But till that happens God I pray;
Send me to dreamland one more day.
