I watch her sleeping
and wait for her to wake
with those sleepy eyes,
quiet sighs and heart full of
aches and pains.

I touch her skin,
I kiss her lips
and study her face
with my fingertips.

I hang on every last one
of her unspoken words
which all sound
like some song
that I’ve
ever heard.

I breathe in her sweetness
while she rests in my arms
tempting her soul to believe
that it’s no longer in harm.

Our bodies
and minds intertwined,
I finally drift off to sleep.
Side by side,
with the past behind
and exceptionally more than
I had ever hoped to find.
