The Sweetest Sleep

She sleeps
the sweetest sleep
Her head lies gently
upon her pillow
Clutched in her arms
is his pillow nestled
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 another's 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

A Native New Yorker, I've been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. It is my hope that someone may find solace in my words.
