in peaceful rest your eyes are kissed
with gentle sleep i watch over you
with passion and pride and know where
my heart belongs
i wait for you to waken anticipating
your bright smile and warm affection
with each soft breath and subtle sleeping
move i am a heartbeat away from greeting
you with a touch a smile a kiss
so intense are my feelings for want of
that when we first met i sometimes shaded
my thoughts for fear of being judged too
much of a romantic. now, together, i know
that the romance was not mine to give,
yours to inspire.
i will not wake you from your soft
disturb your dreams. they are yours to experience.
i am content to sit and watch over
sleep, my love. i am here.
