Love and lightning

Dark and stormy is the night
      and you are by my side
As you cling to me in fright
      your love won’t be denied
Lightning flashes overhead
      and thunder claps resound
You cling to me within our bed
      I hold the love I’ve found
Wind attacks the roofs and doors
      the windows lashed by rain
Hail stones sound more like applause
      the way you feel is plain
The chaos builds all round the house
      Your face lies on my chest
My arms around my perfect spouse
      The one I love the best
And when the storm is at its height
      We love as man and wife
The act of love is always right
    At any time of life
The storm will pass and all is calm
    And sleep will come to you
Cuddled close in my right arm
    Each storm brings love so new.
