The birds were singing
You could hear grass growing
Your soul could feel heaven
As a gentle little breeze
Was occationally blowing.
As I taken him within my arms
Holding him ever so close
His anxiousness excitingly
Showing through his spirit
As he extended his arms towards me.
I felt his lashes
As he laid upon my breast.
I felt his breath
As he gently slept
I felt his caress.
I felt within.
Pounded within my heart
As I held him
Deeper than close.
When he awakened
His eyes met mine
Sleeps deep imagination.
I felt his love penetrate
I knew his need
And I began to feed
His silent request
With tenderness and anticipation.
I humbled myself
I respected the ambience
And submitted to my instinct
A woman's obligation.
The breath of life
The beatuty of life
The trust of considertion.
To have and to hold
Ones total control
You hold wihin your arms
The heart of anothers soul.
The sounds of the unheard
The stories of the untold
The bindings of only the soul.
