For One More Night

Let the snow cover the windows

Let it shut us inside

Let the blazing fire

Soothe your heart against my skin. 

 

You stare in my eyes

Wondering the words forming behind them.

I am lost in your eyes—

A sea that life has thrown me overboard

And I want no rescue from.

Tears form on my cheeks

Too vulnerable to speak the words

I feel you need to hear.

But you already know,

The tale is in my eyes.

Your confirmation as you lay

Your head on my heart.

Our heartbeats creating music

That floats our souls

Away from the snow and wind.

Away from the obligations of tomorrow,

Before we depart to families,

Cheerful and energetic

To see us outside the walls of the 

Blue-fire Bliss we both created.

So for tonight . . .

 

Let the snow cover the windows

Let it shut us inside

Let the blazing fire

Soothe your heart against me skin.
