Exquisite Treasure

What an exquisite treasure you are
rocking my day to sleep
leading it joyfully into night
kissing my ears with tender words
that stir my soul to ask
how could a moment like this
have taken my lifetime to arrive
as I relax my grip and breath
knowing tomorrow will come
if it will
and that you will be standing
within my reach if you choose
to touch a heart that is missing
from your own chest
as your heart has taken a home
inside of me
and we dance through that
magically in each others spell
not really held but free
except by the desire to touch
another cut from the same cloth
but only embroidered 
with different names
that proclaim one truth
that wisdom should be held nobly 
and nobility should be wisely held
so my hope still dances
to touch your hair with my face
and feel the caress of your lips
curiously exploring my neck
naked in our words
telling each other's truth 
through eyes that cannot lie
except together as one
