As you were sleeping
I came and knelt by your bed
tucked the covers up to your head
and sat watching you.
you were sleeping in peace
with a soft smile on your face
your breathing steady and slow
a soft rythametic flow.
a hair tendril was astray
and on your eyes it lay
I set it back
to your hair so black
and run my fingers
through your silken waves.
contrasting with your dark hair
your skin was so fair
glowing with a sleepy flush
smooth under my touch
your resting lashes so long
your features from sleep no longer strong.
I sat back and watched
the beautiful picture you made
and in my mind I wondered
about what you were dreaming
as you were sleeping.

Sigh...this is so remnisent of how long you can stare at someone you love, just enamoured by the steady sound of their breathing.

Nice poem, yumna. And welcome!

I need to ask you to change your email address to a valid one, however. Every time someone replies to this thread, I get an email saying the server can't find you.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing more of your work...
