He Only Comes Out At Night

About a girl who has dreamt of her soul mate since childhood - she gets "glimpses" of him, feels who he is - but has never seen him. And no, not a poem related to me in any way

There is a man I know well
Who only comes out at night
He sings me lullabies when I'm upset
Kissing away the tears whenever I should cry

He only comes out at night
Lurking in the shadows
Of my unconscious mind
Hiding on the edges of my dreams

I feel so loved and understood
When he holds me in his arms
He knows how to make me smile
He brings out the best in me

He only comes out at night
Lurking in the shadows
Of my unconscious mind
Hiding on the edges of my dreams

Whenever he is near
My life is full of cheer
I feel complete and whole
When he embraces me so

He only comes out at night
Lurking in the shadows
Of my unconscious mind
Hiding on the edges of my dreams

He hides his face in the shadows
So no one can see who he is
In all the time we've known each other
His identity has remained unknown

He only comes out at night
Lurking in the shadows
Of my unconscious mind
Hiding on the edges of my dreams

Although he feels so familiar
He only comes out at night
When I am alone sleeping in my room
He enters my thoughts and dreams

He only comes out at night
Lurking in the shadows
Of my unconscious mind
Hiding on the edges of my dreams
He only comes out at night
And only in my dreams

The End
