While You Were Sleeping – Happy Valentine’s Day!

The lights of the city streets
softly illuminated the room.
You lay there sleeping just moments
after we had made love for the very first time.

Still glistening with perspiration
from the passion we had just shared,
a gentle smile graced your lovely face,
which seemed to glow in the early morning light.

It was if I were seeing you for the first time.
Your soft brown eyes, the curve of your lips,
the roundness of your face, your long flowing hair.
I traced the outline of your body with my fingertips,
starting with your face, the nape of your neck,
the slope of your shoulders, getting to know every curve,
every inch, every part of you.

I held you close, measuring every breath,
every heart beat, every soft sound you made while you slept.
The world around us was starting to stir,
the city lights giving way to the new day sun.
I fell madly in love that morning,

While you were sleeping.
