Yours to Take

The Rhythm of Love

“Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray to you my soul to keep
So if I die before I wake
I pray to you my soul to take”

Because it’s been yours since the moment we met
The soul in my heart and the heart in my chest
So if this is my final day
My soul is yours to keep it safe

I know in this life, I’ve made some mistakes
But loving you, dear, is not one of them
I know if I die, while I’m in the dreamscape
My soul is safe when you hold it within

Soak up this love, and have you no fear
If I awake, I will be right here
In hope for a love to last all my life
I know that I found it, if I die this night

Smile upon my memory
If I’m taken away
If I die in my sleep
My life is yours to take

This is so beautiful and I'm slightly embarassed to say it moved me to tears. Thank you for writing this.

There are few compliments

better than those that confirm a work invokes such a strong emotional response.
Thank you for taking the time to both read and comment.
