Return To Me

I watch you sleep
I watch you smile
As you dream
And all the while
You’re here by me
Yet far somewhere
I can’t help but think
I wish I could follow you there

There where I can’t reach you
In unconscious paradise
I can only hope to meet you
As I’m closing my own eyes

But for now
It’s enough
To have you in my arms, love
Drift away
And I’ll be
Right here waiting when you wake and return to me

I lay awake
To hear your breathing
Noises you make
They comfort me
You mumble words
With unknown meanings
Oh, but I listen anyway


Darlin’, sail the sands tonight
Into your unconscious mind
I’ll be your anchor all my life
The moment you open your eyes
