While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping

A Poem by Alex

Great poem.



While You Were Sleeping
I studied your face while you slept last night
In the dimness of our room in what little light
Tears would gently roll down my stained face
Onto the blankets and pillow in our quiet place
How peaceful and simple my love for you feels
How precious this moment and all that it steals
What timeless emotion comes forth in my heart
As I know each night I can repeat this part
While you were sleeping so peaceful last night
I fell in love with you again in the dim light
And tears turned to wonder and joy in our bed
No words were needed as all had been said
Good night sweet angel lay down your sweet head
Drift off into slumber with nothing to dread
For while you are sleeping I’ll watch over you
And keep you safe the whole night through

A very beautiful piece indeed! Your father wrote this? Any man who can construct brilliant words like that is quite the man. The flow is wonderful, the sentiments heartfelt!
