The Edge Of A Dream - Poem by Braden Patton

My limbs are growing heavy and my eyes are getting weak.
The sunset pales the sky as I kiss your cheek.
We lie on our pillows and settle in our beds,
A place for you and me to rest our tired heads.

On the edge of a dream I see your face,
Pale and perfect like woven lace.
In a cloud of innocence we sleep,
Protected by our hearts and feelings so deep.

Silence and peace are all that surround,
Like a blanket of comfort that we have found.
The warmth of your presence caresses my cheek,
In a dream so perfect we could sleep for a week.

And in our peace we feel like one,
Like the stars are melting into the sun.
The sound of something humming in our ears
As if it was washing away our anger and fears.

And if it were up to me
My lips would be forever pressed against your forehead.
Locked for eternity
In an embrace with my beloved.
The odds and ends nicely tucked away
As if to say
There is no other way
To spend my night and day
Without you now
I wouldn’t know how
To go on without my girl
My whole entire world
Would seem like nothing to me
If you weren’t sleeping next to me
Every time I wake,
For as long as we both shall ache
I think we should just sleep for now
And in the morning we can sort this out
But as long as I have you here I’d just like to say
We won’t yell and scream and cry as long as you just stay.
