Aubade – This Much and More

It tiptoes into the heart quietly;
in the serenade of black where emotion takes center stage–
a moment of truth
alive and brimming, existing between two people,
how did we come to this?
You take the pain and turn it into something beautiful,
with your lips
remove all doubt and then press them to mine
until the sky bursts with light;
perhaps this is what it feels like to share your life,
perhaps this is what it feels like to belong.
