Keepsakes

I held you in my hands
while you were sleeping
I looked at your face
and thought
how lucky I am.

I wish I could see
your dreams
and hoped
you were smiling in sleep
dreaming about me.

I removed the hair
falling on your face.
I moved
my hands on your body
engulfing it
as river embodies
into the sea.

I want
the time to stop.
Make the moment immortal
Let me absorb
the weight of your body
against mine.

Tomorrow will be another day
So sleep with me
My Love
Lay against my shoulders
Let's join the pieces
of our puzzle.
Let's make a postcard picture
A picture we both believe in!

    Excellent. The words seem to take the reader in the world of the poet. Every word of it lives, every feeling oozes with splended emotions. Keep going, WE are proud.
    Love
