You chose the right side of the bed –
The side of power and strength,
And, though wild thoughts ran through your head,
You fell asleep at length,

And started breathing soft and low –
In-out, in-out, in-out,
And, by the moon’s unearthly glow,
You left me in no doubt

My love for you would still be true
Beyond my dying day.
And so I asked the sleeping you
If you would like to stay.

And, from some far-off dreamland place,
A knowing smile lit up your face.
