Morning - Poem by Elsa Bear

sunshine peeps through the curtains,
lying side by side,
gently holding hands,
our legs entangled in the sheets
bodies intertwined.
i awake before you
and watch you for a moment.
so peacefully you lie there,
beathing softly,
your heart beating in time with mine.
you sleep on,
unaware of how much i love you,
how much i need you.
all night we stayed up talking,
amongst other things.
i fell asleep on your chest,
clinging to you,
as if you were my last hope.
your hands lovingly stroked my back
as i drifted into a dreamworld.
wiping the sleep from your eyes,
you mumble a good morning,
and you slowly pull me closer.
you give me a sleepy smile
and tell me you love me.
and the sun shines brighter,
the birds sing sweeter,
and the world is ok.
