Monthly Archives: February 1999


Woke up quite suddenly one dawn and found myself very much aware of the morning. Dedicated to the one I love.

I woke to the daybreak
The curtains caressing the wind
Peaceful, the acute morning
But night lingers still.

Turning, I watched you
Gently asleep.
Sprawled in deep slumber
Your hand protectively flung, was
Quiet strength in the night.

I saw you;
Dark tousled hair
Long lashes against your cheeks
You were a child again.
