He Sleeps Alone

Watching Over Me

Tonight he sleeps alone
His chest rises and falls
In his quiet room
Lying still, so still
Tired, so deeply tired
Too tired even to dream 

He sleeps alone
But he is not alone
For his heart is connected to his lover
Far away in body
Yet ever near in spirit
She stands always beside him
Tonight she watches over her beloved
As he sleeps
As he rests
Til he wakens
And til he finally returns

The journey is long, so long
But as with all journeys
This too will end
And when it does
The time will come for great rejoicing

When heart and body of lover and beloved
Will at last be one
