As You Lay Sleeping

As You Lay Sleeping


Last night, your slumber was peaceful and deep.

Now softly you stir, from your restful sleep

Dawn emerges; your eyelids begin to flutter.

Now sunlight slowly streams through the shutter.


I feel the radiating warmth of your soft skin.

To make love this morning, I canít wait to begin.

Iíll carry you to reality from your sweet dream.

Iíll know, because I will see your smile beam.


I hope your dreams were filled with wonder.

Or maybe some enchanting spell you were under.

Were your dreams, images of us together?

Or were you a butterfly, as light as a feather.


I watch your chest rise as you breathe in air.

I watch my Queen as she lay sleeping there.

Your radiance, I soak up like a sponge.

To swim inside of you, Iíd take the plunge


This magical moment is so precious to me.

In the quiet of the morning, your face I see.

I dare not disturb you, instead I enjoy the view.

Thereís nothing in the world that Iíd rather do.


Harold McLelland

To watch someone sleeping after a night of very beautiful love making...
As the dawning light reflects on the bedroom with awakening colors ...
WE...... look at the person that was last night lover...  very beautiful my dear friend... HUgs ~ She Whispers
