SLEEP WELL, MY LOVE

I stroked her hair,
as she lay beside me.
Deep in slumber,
resting and pain free.

Warm body beside me,
cold, dark night air;
My lover snuggles,
a life we share.

Love of my heart,
rest easy this night;
Guardian of my peace,
angel in my sight.

Breathe easy and deep,
dream sweet dreams.
Rest my love,
keeper of my heart.

I stroke her hair,
love in my heart busting.
I embrace her love,
sleeping safe and trusting.

Kiss her cheek,
unknown to her.
Sleep well my love,
Till morning does occur.
