DAWN SONG

You lie like a child beside
me breathing softly, eyes closed,
lost in rest and dreaming.
The warmth of you,
the stillness, the trust that hovers
about your body as you sleep
rests me.
Feel the healing settle.
Life breathed in the bedclothes glows red
like the eye of the sun.
We lie here silent as dawn breaks,
kissed by the light from the window,
bodies warm like babies.
Touch your forehead
as you are stirring,
whisper:
"Know you are wanted.
Know you are loved".
