I look at you sleeping
I look at you sleeping; your lovely face;
Your lips, your eyelids, your cheeks and your brow,
And I want to kiss every single place;
Awake as I am at this early hour.
But I know if do you’ll be angry;
Who am I to disturb your peaceful sleep?
My darling; you mean everything to me,
But I know sleep’s bliss and love would be cheap
If I, on a whim, waked you selfishly,
So I turn away, stare at the ceiling,
Consider all the years I’ve shared with you
And conclude; we both share the same feeling;
And that feeling is; I love you so much;
But you’re asleep, so I look, but don’t touch.
