Sweet Sensations

The full moon parts while the suns arising
giving way to a new dawn.
My body is stirring in the soft morning light
I awake from a dream to found my senses are filled
with the sweet scent of summer 
carried on a warm summer breeze.

My long flowing hair is damp from the fragrant morning mist,
smelling like the morning dew,
I trail off remembering this dream of mine
slowly waking me to my passion rising
the scent of a far off lover
and the taste of his warm lips still lingering on mine.
A butterfly dances by my bed and whispers a sweet song
"Come close - draw near,"
"Come join us and drink deep
the rich amber-colored nectar of life
to help mend your broken dreams.

Let's go running' on the back of the wind
we will take you to places that you've never been,
where the sun is beyond the mountain glow,

There you are boundless and free
you can enjoy a grander sight

Listen to the sound of the sweet music 
and dance with ten thousand butterflies in flight
till the first rays of the soft moonlight.
