On This Night

On This Night

She sat outside his window
Watching his sleeping eyes
Wondering what visions
The Dreamweaver gave him this night
Into his bedroom window
She came with a gentle breeze
Landing at the edge of his pillow
To try to catch a bit of his dreams
She whispered in his ear
Goodnight my unfortunate night
I know you might not claim me
But my heart will be yours this night
I ask nothing in return
Only that you keep it safe
Promise to never throw it away
And please don’t let it break
As she stood to leave him
She blew him a kiss goodbye
And she left the key to her heart and soul
On the pillow next to his sleeping eyes.
