Soft Whispers

Rose petals strewn upon the bed
their scent enticingly familiar
with slippery black satin sheets
that softly whisper
of a greater love
than any I'd yet known

Patterns of moonlight
play in shadows 'cross the wall
mesmerizing, fascinating
enchanting in their tenderness
answering this ancient call
within a soul just newly born

while echoes of the sweetest song
play languidly upon the breeze
as it touches, gently
everything I am
and you enter here
to lie with me
within this sacred chamber
of my heart
