Phantom Lover

You come to me in my dreams
With passion and fire overwhelming
I’ve kissed you a thousand times
But wake alone in the morning

I know the bronze of your skin
By candle glow and moonlight
And the strength of your arms
As you hold me through the night

I can’t imagine anything sweeter
Than the honey taste of your tongue
Or hear any sound more beautiful than
Our mingled voice when love’s done

But when I wake and open my eyes
It’s to find that you’re not here
And I’m left so lost, bewildered
At the way that you disappear

My dark and beautiful lover
It seems you’ve crept into my soul
Elusive through daylight hours
But at night you make me whole
