Tucked into bed, you’re sound asleep.
I can’t help but wonder about the smile on your face.
Do my thoughts create the charming curve?
You gently exhale, in agreement.
And I blush, quietly to myself.
As the moonlight outlines my shy face,
Your shadows keep me warm.
The winds whisper a soft lullaby.
Entwined in each other’s breath,
We will lie hopeful until dawn.
When the sunshine kisses our eyes,
We’ll awake to another blessed day.
A new desire will erupt,
Of a lifetime of togetherness,
Or just this moment of calm.
I hopelessly try to cage the night.
And watch you smile in deep slumber.
Where do your dreams take you, love?
I wish to follow secretly.
And you exhale.
