As sunlight slips between the shades I do
My joy and watch you sleep – with love, I do.
The love I have for you belongs to me,
A secret knowledge, wisdom which I do.
My light, my life, producing you in me
In children and in all the things I do.
I’m unified with you, in you, through you –
With you I’m confident in all I do.
My fingers slide softly across smooth skin,
And love fills every touch of you I do.
You resurrected me to a new life
And Heaven is in all with you I do.
I want to live in every jasmine kiss
From you I steal – I swear to you I do.
Such supple flesh enfolds me as I press
In close, embracing you through all I do.
My love of you in many ways had just
Begun the night I said to you, “I do.”
I celebrate the joy of all my love
For you in every thought, in what I do.
And now I slip into our room to watch
You sleep and breathe, a comfort that I do
Then we’ll wake up together and you’ll know
Your Troy will always love you, for I do.
