Sea of Dreams

So tired and fast asleep you lie peacefully by my side
I quietly rest and listen as you breathe
I want so much to take you, into my own sea of dreams
Swim together on the cresting waves of ecstasy

I reach out to touch your cheek, my hand stops in midair
Remembering how tired you really are
So I watch the beating of your pulse hypnotize my eyes
Admiring your sleeping peace from afar

Soon, I give in to temptation; gently brush you with a kiss
A whisper of moist lips upon your brow
Yet you remain asleep even with the warmth my kiss induces
A bit of heaven into your sea of dreams endowed
