Watching You Sleep

Your warmth surrounds me
   with each breath
   encircling me in you
As the rhythm follows
   in silence spooned with you
Eyes flutter delicately
   betraying to me your dreams
   happily secure, beautifully complete
The rise of your chest
   beneath my hand
   binds me to your side
Forever is long
   but still I'm here
   holding you while you sleep
