Got hit by the poetic tonight. So, hey, why should I be the only one to suffer. You guys get to share too.
Your hair so silken, flowing gloss, that gleams in morning’s sun
With colors rich and subtle tones touched here, and woven there
Locks so soft, and delicate that through my fingers glide
While you sleep, sweet gentle love, in dreams without a care.
With lips so pure, and blushed with pink I’d crown them with a kiss
And share your breath, your quiet sounds, and come to love them more
With you beside me, in silent sleep, I watch and listen still
My heart steel bound, and cast to you, my thoughts in love and awe.
Your face so full of innocence, with trust and sleep’s embrace
I lay and watch, and I sup my fill on your exquisite beauty
I will not wake such poignant scenes, nor mar contented dreams
But know this now, I honor you, but not due to vows and duty.
There’s no one else who could move me more to love as much as you
I’m bound with soul, and snared with need, to never wander far
Would I escape? I fathom not, there’s nowhere I could be
Than by your side, and with you now, awaiting the morning star.
All this and more, I pledge to you because…
