While You Laid There Sleeping

Last night I said "I love you,"
while you laid there sleeping.
Words that clearly raged my head
but often feared
to reach my lips
which you so gently kissed,
just before, you laid there sleeping.
Words only my arms before would speak
as we laid weak,
but still embraced, so close
that not a trace of air
would dare to find its way
between our bodies
locked, still moist with passion
as I lay upon your chest,
felt your breath
and wondered if 
you thought I was asleep
when I heard you say
"I love you"
