Oh, Did You Know?
Author: Marion Carroll


I'm sleeping in my lover's arms,
my lips curled in a smile.
I'm nestled in his sweet embrace,
and in my heart, I sigh.

His lips are warm upon my neck,
I stir beneath his touch.
Who knew a butterfly's soft kiss
would move my heart so much.

My lashes flutter as I wake,
and gaze into his face.
I'm drawn into his loving touch,
my heart begins to race.

My lover loves me tenderly,
I'm captive to his power.
He reaches for my very soul,
and I open like a flower.

Oh, Darling, did you know your kiss
would kindle my desire?
And from the ashes of my heart
would build a raging fire?

I'm breathless as you mold my flesh
to gratify our needs.
We cling together as we fall,
the whole world hears my screams.

Then in the afterglow of joy,
I lay against your chest.
And drift away to peaceful sleep,
with your hand upon my breast.
