The story of a pair of lover's night time escape.

Riverside Lovers

by AudreyRose

Along the riverside where the faeries sing and play,
I will lie and wait for you at the ceasing of the day.
When the night owls and the crickets sing their songs into the air,
I will lie and wait for you, will you come and find me there?

Will you walk among the heather, let your hair blow in the breeze?
Will you jump across the brook and trek bravely through the trees?
Will you risk the dark to find me, your heart's lady of the night?
Find me and protect me, keep me safe til' morning's light.

We can make a bed of ivy and be lulled by bubbling stream,
We can get lost inside our haven til' we fall into a dream.
Tangled in each others bodies as our hearts together pound;
As you tell me that you love me without making a sound.

And we'll lay and watch the stars make their journey through the sky,
fall asleep inside each other with a contented sigh.
Then we'll wake beside the river, with the faeries gone away,
when the pale rose of the sky marks the dawn of a new day.

Our eyes will open slowly, our bodies still intertwined,
I'll breathe in the scent of you as our hands each other find.
Then you'll kiss the morning dew from upon my upturned face
as the meddlesome new day steals our shadowed hiding place.

Then with a final loving gaze and a taste of lips so sweet,
with a promise though apart,together our hearts beat.
And that though at day we leave, know when evening fills the air-
I will lie and wait for you, will you come and find me there?
