Sounds of Slumber


Tentative

Your breath, soft as a
tentative declaration of love
gentle as a summer breeze
through rustling leaves

Your lashes, resting on the
pillowy softness of your cheek
Your silken tresses
an ebony curtain shielding your face

Your honeyed sighs
Your lilting chortle
the dulcet sounds
of your slumber,
a soothing lullaby

A forever melody
