Quiescence Beauty

Lay your head on

The compassion of your pillow

My beautiful one

Slumber away your troubles

Dream of places beyond your reach







For when you awaken actuality of life’s

Existence will be the pillow

You slumber on

The bed upon which holds

Your body so inviting

A sarcophagus

You’ll open your eyes to

Gaze into the eyes of judgment

Sleeping beauty slept for

A thousand years

As thousands years to a day

My precious one so at peace

Fairies and sugar plumbs

Dance as you sleep

Angel’s wings brush sweetly

Against the softness of your cheeks

Your smile is serene

Visions of tranquility

Wrap you in its cocoon

Protecting you from wicked

Thoughts trying to arouse

You from the mystical world you’ve


Awaken, awaken, my seraph

Sleep no more

That was amazingly beautiful. I want to dream now and fall away in a cloud so soft and fuzzy. What a beautiful write. Light and lots of love,

I felt and thought these words as I stood over my first born, sleeping in her cradle, so peaceful and angelic, she was a beauty, blonde blue eyed and precious to my soul. Yes this was so beautiful to read and the pics spoke a thousand words as well.
