Quiet in your sleep you lie beside me, my lover
Tranquil and relaxed, with beauty that astounds
I watch you marvelling amazed you love me
The years have not transgressed against you, body or soul.
But have enhanced all that inspires my love for you
Daily growing in your presence, making life a joy.
Soulmates, we journey together, loving each other
Supporting when one stumbles and falls
Never questioning nor rebuking when times are hard
Always seeing the light and never the darkness.
You sigh wistfully in your sleep and call my name
I kiss your forehead, you smile and sigh again
Time with you is so sweet and precious
And still your beauty of soul beckons to my heart.
