I Slept with You last Night

It was quiet when we talked, alone.
You and me in the evening glow
I could even see a smile,
In the luminescent light

I really wanted to hold you
But knew I could not, at least yet
And your lips danced in my mind
With every word, that you said

You told of dreams and loss
All those changes in your life
And really, I listened very hard
But all I could think of was a kiss

You laughed at my simple jokes
So sweet to humor me so
And my heart would ache
With every one of your smiles

I touched your lips with my mind
So soft and warm, as I thought
I wanted more with every touch
But was afraid that you would run

When we lay down to sleep
I just held you in my arms,
kissed your shoulder and your neck
and saw our future in my dreams.

I love this one.  There is something about the flow of this, that I can hear your voice reading it.  A perfect addition for the book.

Very nice Parker   The sweet romantic image was somewhat shattered when Serenity's reply reminded me of the cowboy hat though!

beautifully expressed
I love romantic poems...and so this is it

from which evolves the light...

It's good to know that I'm not the only one who believes that tenderness and intimacy go beyond what most try to obtain in a "bed" scenario. True caring and closeness go beyond what can be so easily had. very well written.
       Peace, Geoffrey
