IMG_1465Lovers’ Sleep

Arms,
Rife with shadow memories –
Her skin
Rise and fall of each breath –
Cling gentle. Silent reminders of their lovers’ sleep

Heart
Bereft of the touch that matters –
Her skin,
Rise and fall of each breath –
Joy cascades waterfall memories of their lovers’ sleep

Mind,
Warmth soaked full into memory life –
Her skin,
Rise and fall of each breath –
Life imbued through the simplest gesture of their lovers’ sleep

Soul,
Missing the comfort of a million clearly heard, unspoken “I love you’s” –
Her skin,
Rise and fall of each breath –
Arms overrun in shadow remembrances of their lovers’ sleep…
