As she slept

Her eyes led me to this
 Christmas morning a time not to miss
  presents waiting to be opened as others slept
    I sat thinking of her touch her lips the time she wept 
     for years we spent this day with gratitude and contempt
      this years fills no different up to early alone, time well spent 
       the time is spent remembering Christmas's past before this
Her kiss my best gift
 to have what is...this
  I could never see now
   my life I don't even know how
   watching as my wife and kids sleep 
    being blessed with the memories I keep 
     never hungry, never cold, no more bitterness
Held in her arms 
 a world with no harm
  a life I always wanted
    fillings blocked and hid
     a winner one who has it all
      a true fortune one with no fall
       I have it all right here in her arms 
As she slept
 her love kept
  a man that is
   a love that is his
    a gift so many seek
     I have here to keep
      even so as she slept.
