Laura In My Arms


I feel your breathing on my heart
A loving whisper on my skin
So deep and peacefully you sleep
Secure and safe in my embrace

Your silken hair entwines with mine
A feathery cascade of gold
That glows when touched by morning sun
And smells of flowers all year long

Our bodies are connected still
We are one flesh, one heart, one soul
I'll cherish you with every breath
Together we are both made whole.

(1993)
