Just Being

The way I feel tonight watching you sleep

I love you without words or knowing –

Just being. 

How is it you so transcend the ordinary to me? 

As if your very scent had made the air come alive. 

*

How long have I loved you? 

I don’t even know when I knew… 

…it just seems like always. 

And I want to feel this way forever 

As I listen to your gentle breathing. 

And behind closed eyes your soul whispers to mine 

Understandings deeper than words 

And I softly kiss you and you briefly stir, 

For kisses need no words. 

*

Sweet peace…

The cares of the day forgot

A half smile plays upon your lips

In tranquil innocence.

Some moments transcend time in ways that cannot be described

There’s just a knowing…

And all that has gone before

And perhaps all that will ever be

Is not as real to me as you are right now

And you’ll never know…

…but a woman always knows.

But for me, right now, there’s just being ~

For I have no other words.

Just one last kiss before I sleep.
