I will not steal your dreams ..........

No .........not like you think I will......I'm
only here to save you

Let yourself sleep my love..... Here ...beneath my
wing...... curl up and lay your
pretty face here on my thigh

Let me listen for your breath
the breath that flows easily from
your rising and falling breast

No one will harm you
I promise that over my my bent
and broken body

Sleep my Love sleep
maybe the piano keys drift away
to some silent place as you curl up
and sigh

Or you dream of flowered fields and
children running in the grass
or the lamb in the meadow
lies down near you

I am fearless here in the dark
I have fought all the demons
and they are weakened by my
vigilance

I sit wide awake
and ever vigilant.............Sleep
my love
sleep

Sounds like a bond of true love between them will keep them safe from what is beyond. It is sweet sleep when the one you love promises watch over you. Beautiful!

This is absolutely beautiful, ahorseback...it brings to mind being in the arms of a lover, content and totally comfortable. Love the visual imagery you painted with your words: they are full of love and conviction.

ImKarn , I am glad to have touched you , and "safe" is such a big part of love for a woman , I know that ! In a way its sad that a woman needs to feel safe in life though. Often I will even smile at a woman and they look away , im sure out of fear or domination by a mate ?. Who knows but thank you for this .....:-}

Fennelseed , Thank you , I think it comes from being the "fixer " in relatioships of the past. As for you . I hope all is fixed! Your life seems turned around lately and for the better I'm sure ! ......Be well , be happy! Life is short
