Sleeping Beautifully ( a sonnet)

Updated on December 17, 2013

Source

While you were sleeping ... I found Paradise

While you slept ,dear, I was fascinated

By the world, in slumber, you created

that while you slept my mind was filled with peace

and all the happiness I did so need

I got this joy; being in your presence

Intoxicated swim... in your essence

and it all started when I watched you breath;

your life's breath as the gentlest of breeze

my face to your mouth ,as close, as could be

I could thus be lost... an eternity

at once was lost , as I kissed your eyelids

your lashes fluttered gently as I did

and I traced my fingers upon your face

you reached for me in a sleepy embrace

but you were not meant to awaken yet

I kissed the trail from your shoulder to neck

nothing could be as beautiful as you

a beauty that even in sleep shines through

and I wondered in sleeping, what you dreamed

and if your dreams might ever be of me

and I prayed a prayer as I watched you sleep

that this moment could be watered down so

and stretched into an endless overflow

bathing gratefully... this endless moment,

You next to me... sleeping beautifully

      Beautiful, Lorenzo. One of the first poems I published here was one I wrote while watching my wife sleep. It's a moment with no expectations when you sense the love upon yourself and know that it is genuine.
