I smell your scent while I’m sleeping,

it wakes me right out of my dreams.

I feel that you might be close then,

there’s more to death than it seams.

A waft of your perfume can stop me,

halting the things I’m trying to do.

It is a fragrance that is so familiar,

it carries me straight back to you.

The perfume is right on the bedside,

but I know it is not that I can smell.

As the scent is tied to my memories,

and I just know it is you, I can tell.

That aroma is linked to emotion,

it is one I connect straight to you.

I’m beaming when I smell you near,

I just so wish I could see you too.
