a moody moment of jazzThere are moments of perfect luxury
that no one can take away.
I love the soft quiet dreamy feeling
when I watch you sleep
in the twilight.
I love to hear the gentle music wrap around us like
satin envelopes of night.
It's a slow moment
as the sun eases into the horizon
and your breath catches
and my eyes glide along your lips.
How could I ask for more
when I trace the curve your dress follows
along your thigh?
I know it's a simple thing to say, but
you are so beautiful when you sleep.
Your careless hair, your soft skin,
It's this feeling I have,
when I sit quietly beside you,
this tender feeling of peace, of trust, of affectionate calm,
and I know I love you.
