I say to you goodnight

Rob Nesmith 1982 (South Carolina)

and with this I say goodnight: champagne and candle light.. skin glowing from the reflection of the moonlight.
the cigar is light
no food but I'm hungry for your love and I have a strong appetite
the mood is right
and I say to you goodnight..
a kiss on your forehead as we make our way to the bed.
you laid ..
I kneel..
you went to sleep but I prayed
you opened your eyes and I was still on my knees
you asked baby is everything alright
I grabbed your hand and held it tight while I continue to pray
you got up and came on the floor beside me
and I'm still there praying
you became concern,
but you didn't interrupted me..
 the tears started falling from my eyes and you comfort me
on my knees I remain
and so did you as I prayed silently ..
you embrace me then I said AMEN..
you asked baby is everything alright. I said yes I'm sorry for making you so worried but I had to ask the Lord to please show me what I have to do to always keep you by my side.

then he responded lead by example.. and with this I say goodnight
