Under Morpheus watchful eyes

Ribax [CC BY-SA]

Once there where red blood flowing
Warm pleasurable hands roving
Eyes that shone with desire
Passion life require

Now there’s only bone and dust
Fading memories of lust

In my dreams we
Live and love and laugh
Like I never wrote your epitaph

Under Morpheus watchful eyes
Together to the skies we rise
Our souls fly seaward on the wings of a bird

When the truth is
You are long dead and interred
