"My Sleeping Love"

A still-dark morn, I awaken to an early dawn

for the sun to watch it rise -

I turn to see your sleeping form

and realize

as I always do when gazing at you,

that all I truly need to see

is adrift in the ocean of your loving eyes.

Without you, I have but

unfinished joys and the incompleted noise

of our laughter and delight,

or the sorrows when we fight.

But always, I remain at your pleasure

my dearest treasure,

these are days I share with you

the tenderness

a soft surprising kiss -

Like one sunrise into another,

I will follow you

and no other.

Come my love, awake and watch with me.

This is very beautiful, Cath!  The feelings you express go way beyond the surface of a one night stand and delve deeply into your heart and soul. It was interesting to me that you wrote about this person as "sleeping"  - a place where we are most vulnerable, sweet, soft and almost precious.  There is definitely love between these two people - a connection that probably does not happen real often.  You have used words to generate real feelings and they reach out to me from your journal and take my hand.  I will be glad to "watch with you".  Thank you.
