I watched you from the window when the garden was your bliss;
such joy and peace inside your heart, such love was ever this.
The sunny smile, the velvet touch on flowers, trees, and grass;
my maiden fair with raven hair, my woman, my love, my lass.
I watched you toil the day away, the night came much too soon;
were light enough upon the soil, you’d thank the summer moon.
I watched you walk and swing your arms, your gait was brisk, your spirit bright.
I watched you sleep in heaven’s arms, I kissed your cheek goodnight.
Now lay your head and close your eyes and feel the gentle touch
of one who saw you in the light; one who knows little, but much.
Slumber in the darkened room that saw our love and now
is witness to a love renewed by circumstance somehow
