All night



We fell for each other.
We fell asleep beside
I watch you between sleep and dream
I watched you in respite

I saw a smile cross you
Lips upturned so slight
Do you dream of me, arms around
Or our passion from the night

I drift back to join you
Into the black of sleep
To find and share, sail beside
Aboard the Remship deep

You’re my only vessel
I’ll fill your cargo hold
With love, joy, anger, wine and song
All my treasures untold

It was an empty sea
Without your gift of life
An endless journey’s loneliness
No journey’s end in sight

So sail as dark Earth spins
Sail the depths of our lives
Neither sleep nor blackness separates
Our love in sleep survives
