The poem(s) are below...


Be still my heart

Quietly I gaze towards my love,
though she lays beside me,
I'm trapped in this wonder and 

Her eyelashes,
Her skin,
Her lips,
Her hair,
Her mouth,

to not have mornings view 
would be death to thy heart.
Not for a minute,
 nor for second shall I take for 
granted thoughts of life again.

Sunlight moves across and lays 
upon a second  soul, 
Showing arms clinched 
Our heart is still,
as one.
