Beautiful Slumber - Poem by T.J. Daniels

I watched
as the slow
rhythmic rising and falling
of your breast
let me know
that you were sleeping.

I watched
as peaceful memories
filled my soul.

I remember the day we met
and our eyes locked.

It was at that moment
I knew you were the one.

I continued to watch your slumber
'til I awakened.

It was then
that I realized...

You were only a dream.
