The room is dim, but the light is bright.
A tender flicker of radiance is overtaking the candlelight.
It is the glow in her soul that defeats the shadows
And illuminates the opaque path of the night.
She is truly the light on the darker side of me,
And the ghosts and demons of my nightmares
Are vanquished by her smile
And her scent and her embrace.
Her whispering breath speaks of serenity
And in her eyes, I can see eternity.
There is a sense of belonging in her embrace,
And those three oft-repeated words are abridged in one kiss.
The faintest feeling is felt at first sight
Only to fade in a heartbeat
But the feeling can come back, and before you realise it
You cannot turn back nor do you want to.
