Sleeping next to me so silent, you are
a drowsing sentinel; a dreaming star
watching over me even as the night dies
I hunger to see the sun in your eyes

To be without you late in the night
is to be walking in great, dark halls
finding no entrance, no exit
and no candle to shed light;
surreal dark shadows
seem to jump off of the walls

But to be with you late in the night
is to open my eyes and clearly see
the air embellished with clear blue light
as I feel your warmth enfold ‘round me

Listen, you can fairly hear it breathe
listen to the softness of this night
it sings with a sweetness barely believed
it echoes and sighs with unwavering delight

Precious one, slumbering at my side
I’m longing for you, and for your sake
I reach for your hand; I let you lie
and I hunger to hold you when you awake.

This was so sweet! Now the question is...whom is it lying next to you? A child, a loved one?  I guess it don't matter anyhow, this was really touching!

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.
