Get Rid Of The Advertisements

RESTING GENTLY
 
I see reflections of a flickering candle
From the twinkling stars in your eyes.
Your love supports me and lights up the night
As we dance to melodies of a rising moon.

I hear you whisper the night into being the one
Which has been selectively sequestered for us alone.
Your breath gently brushes my hair into beautifully
Knitted ornamental scarfs to ward off the cold.

You touch my lips with deliberate delicacy and
My heart begins its journey into a magical world
To which only lovers have been invited and it is
Colored with the buoyancy and joy of our new love.

A silken breeze wafts through an early morning mist
Sprinkling the aroma of fresh-blooming roses
Which you have grown and nurtured in the fragrant
Garden of promise for the one...and only one.

The first time our lips meet I become your
Willing captive for all of time...the sweet taste
Of perfect harmony and completion resting gently
On the open pages of my heart.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dedicated to the love of my life....
My marriage partner of 53 years...
JIM PEEPLES!
