I want to watch your breathing,
Listening as you sleep,
Heart beating slowly, touch,
Sense the love within your veins.
I want to hold you through the night,
You my reflection and joy of life,
Share your visions as you sleep,
Closed eyes fluttering as you dream.
I want to feel the very depth of you
Vulnerable while you rest at peace
Through each dark hour of night,
Exhale your day in twitch upon your face.
I want to sleep beside your warmth,
See that moment when your lips surrender
Liquid breath of cool night air
As you relax, let go of every care….
I want to watch you, sleeping
As your body lies beside,
Protect your naked back
Until you wake with morning in your eyes.
