The Sweetest Sleep


She sleeps

the sweetest sleep

Her head lies gently

upon her pillow

Clutched in her arms

is his pillow


under her cheek and chin

Kneeling alongside the bed

he watches and wonders

"Is she dreaming of me?"

Quietly, he watches over her

like a Guardian Angel

Slowly, he moves in closer

placing his face

in front of hers

upon the pillow

she holds so tightly

His lips just millimeters

from hers

His breath warms her face

He moves yet even closer

Kissing her ever so gently

his lips on hers so soft

He pauses and she wakes

to keep their kiss alive

Time stands still for both

face to face, gazing

into one anothers eyes

His palm touches gently

upon her cheek

He whispers...

Sleep my darling,

the sweetest sleep

Dream of me for

I am here and

I love you
