Within Me

One lonely heartbeat
sounds within a night of spirit born
in rhythm with a tone eternal
of sun arising through the skies of morn

For hour after hour
I held you here with me
heart withinin my heart
and flesh on flesh
as you cried the tears
of lifetimes now repressed

In gentleness, we rode
upon a wave of spirit sighing
In passion climbed to peaks
we never knew

All because we dared
to move as one
yet now the sun
has stolen you away

and I drift through endless days
One  heartbeat left
to drift through life alone
