Valentine Morning

My drowsy eyes turn to wander Where window gazing, finds a crescent moon Rifting the darkness, and against it's light A magnolia branch is stenciled, black and keen Three stars are tangled in the topmost bough... And because deep loveliness is there, I turn to you... You lay in half light As the fringe of dawn approaches Breeze stirs the sheer lace curtains Our room is infused with crimson hues I’m wishing you might soon awaken But you are sleeping soundly With such contentment It seems all the worry lines Have disappeared from your face Your legs are tangled In the softness of the sheets Your familiar hand now lies Gently on my waist The profile on the pillow Is that boy from long ago I love watching you Your lashes are fluttering What are you dreaming, my love? How could one explain That a love like this exists Before coffee, on a Thursday morning in a shadowed room? ......................................
