Sleeping with you

We switch off the lights
and speak at late nights
I’m magnetised
by your dreamy voice
It makes my heart rejoice
I am hypnotised
by your slow, rhythmic breathing
It leads my soul out of its sheathing

As we speak sweet nothings
and get ready to snooze
An exquisite feeling ensues
Then I pray to the almighty
to make my every night
Just as pious and pretty
as this one
For, even as we doze off
in the darkness,
my life is lit up
‘cos my heart is
aflame with your thoughts
and my soul,
ablaze with your love
