Silent Command

Updated on January 2, 2015
"In Unison"
"In Unison" | Source

Surreptitious magic is in the air

Because I sense you everywhere.

You are in my every conscious thought

The longtime solace I have sought.


At times you invade my wildest dreams

And you’re beside me, it routinely seems.

Your special scent is now in the air,

I long to fondle your flowing hair.


Then I awaken in the arms of the night

To turn around and I then find

That you’re really not here at all

Yet your vision is eternally central.


What is this going on in my head?

Have I lost my mind instead?

I escape my thoughts in every way

And I relinquish this every day.


Each morn you make the sun radiantly shine

And blossoms flourish in impassioned kind.

The sounds of nature seem to taste sweeter

And my anticipation is ever fleeter.


As I sit with my coffee in my hand,

I am swiftly removed to your Motherland.

My pen falls silently to the floor

Where the snows fall, yesterday once more.


Then I awaken in the arms of the night

To turn around and I then find

That you’re really not here at all

Yet your vision is always central.


Then we merge our thoughts as one

As our nature seems that it will be done.

My eyes meld with yours as daybreak returns

Another new day, so much we’ll still learn.


And the candle flickers to dance in time

As together we join in our personal style.

And as we meet and our hearts come nearer

Clandestine destiny becomes ever clearer.
