Sweet Slumber

Updated on April 20, 2014

Falling asleep, she lays in my arm

Silent as a baby, she breaths in warmth.

Scent of her hair steals the air and awake I lay.

Warmth of her body subdues the shakes

I wonder where her mind is venturing off to.

She lays carelessly and peacefully untroubled with the world

Because she knows I made a promise not to leave her in the dark

She knows I won’t succumb to anything that might keeps us apart

She grips my hand tightly, yet so gentle, as I stroke her hair

With my other hand. Without any hint of fear

In her voice, she sweetly and softly says “I love you.”
