Tears well up in her sad green eyes
Neither smile nor laughter can disguise
The pain and sorrow within her heart
Soulmates, lovers kept apart.
In the quiet stillness of the night
The room illuminated by the pale moonlight
She sees him stand beside her bed
Knowing it is just a fantasy in her head.
He lays down beside her and caresses her face
Encircling her in a warm embrace
Holding each other, skin against skin
Stirring their love deep within.
Tender words she whispers in his ear
Telling him that he need not fear
That in her life there is no other
He can never be replaced by another.
