Sleep

Why fall asleep

When you can

Lie awake

For hours

And dry out your

Eyes

Even before

You see the sun

Why put your mind at ease

And fall into a dreamless sleep

When you can contemplate your

Existence

And never

Find a real answer

Why do I lie awake

Hoping this night

Will be better

Than the last

Sing

I will sing my song to

the earth

in the morning

dew hits my lips

as I move my hands

folded

an eye sees the

soft pale colors of dawn

on your skin

and I sing.

it was the breath of air

the hum of your sigh

that gave my heart a tune

it captured my thoughts

more than you know

did you hear?

can you listen,

even in your dreams?

away with the night-time rider

dear lover,

the morning

breaks and

my song radiates

from my chest.

rise to the hum and feel

the vibrations through me

knowing each note

reflects your soft

sweet scent

on my pillow

kisses and cherry blossoms

of the spring time

never cease to arrive

as you slowly open your eyes.

behold the morning

and my

easy gaze

wishing we could

live forever in the morning

moments and

the fire would never burn away

your sleepy smile.

Night Driving

After driving for miles

Down a dark

Barley lit

Asphalt

Runway

I think I deserved

At least 10 hours of sleep

My exhaustion ran deep 

But cylinders did fire

At the early morning hour

And I woke up

More tired

Than when I fell 

Asleep

Mornings

Good morning Dear

I wished for you 

To be carried back to me

By the senses of the early morning

Each night you sleep

Your mind and spirit leave me all alone

Waiting for your return

I am afraid one night

Will last too long

Abd you will no longer be brought back 

Your eyes and peaceful face

Wherin lies the insipration for your contentment?

Love,  sing to me with yawns

Stretch your arms into me

Invade my morning and make the sunrise

As you wipe your eyes

May I stay near the warmth of

your good morning 

Dreams are better shared than saving 

For a rainy day

Tell me your thoughts as I drift to sleep

And I promise to wake

Just as you did for me

Us

As I fell asleep, as he fell asleep, as we fall asleep, there I lie looking up at the ceiling. I am waiting to bring to mind all the reasons I love you. I have cataloged them in my heart but haven’t told you yet. I turn and hear your breath. Soft but continuous. Knowing I am safe and sound, I love us.
