Whispered Bed

There you lay
above my head
there you lay 
in our whispering bed

sleep overtook you
after crimson felt
after violet said
now you lay dreaming
in our whispered bed

teach stone-strong trust
teach strong surrender
teach me to wrap myself
against long winters

teach wide heart gates
teach patient waits and wise retreats
teach me to walk without
you here in summer's heat

Now there you lay
above my head
in silent dreams 
in our whispered bed

I'll walk right up
tread after tread
lay by your side
in our whispered bed.
