I need your warmth, your soft caress,
Wrap me in your quilted words,
Let your smile soothe and swaddle me.
Brush aside my cares and stress,
The candle to my darkened world,
Your lilting lullaby lifts me.
I crave your loving tenderness,
So hold me in an embrace furred,
Your velvet touch will comfort me.
