touch me, kiss me,

hold me tight,

love me gently

through the night.

all the world

is still with sleep,

while inside us

the love runs deep.

run me over

with your eyes,

fingers on my

hair and thighs.

tell me all

those tender words,

along with three

i’ve often heard.

gentle kisses

often land,

upon my nose,

cheeks, ears, and hand.

just love me close,

and love me mild,

and love me gently

as a child.
