393 Night Imaginings [18 March 2001]

in the peace of night
I lie alone
my mind full of you
how your body would feel
curled up against mine
sleeping in quiet silence
breathing the only sound
and your heart
beating its life’s tattoo
your arms strong around me
your breath against
the nape of my neck
your presence
the only comfort I’ll ever need
what would you say
if I asked to stay here
in this moment forever?
and let the world
pass on by without a care
as long as your arms
held me tight in your embrace~
