A blanket for you

A blanket for you
My arms around you
A moment of love
My tight hug

I caress your forehead and tell you I love you
You look at me and smile
Your smile has words
Words that my heart could hear
Your eyes twinkle gathering my answer
For you can’t talk my love
But your words do
For you can’t hear my love
Your heart does

As we sit at the window
Looking at the sunset
I look at the sky
Wanting to pray for you; for me
My head gives me a long list
A long list to ask for
Lot of wrongs to pray for
But I couldn’t
My heart tells me it feels complete
I look at you and feel content
You kiss me back and I feel touched

My tears are flashes of joy
I shut my eyes and continue to dream
Dream of my blanket around you forever
In hope of my life like this with you forever

    This is how it happens for me often.
    Your piece reminded me of sitting bedside with my grandmother. Palpable. Thank you.

    Happy to have you join us for FWF. I hope to see you again. Welcome!

  3. Love the rhythm the poem has, like a ballad on a cool night, sung in company.

  4. This reminds me of the times when my boys were babies. Love doesn't need to be spoken in order to be felt deeply. Thanks for your wonderful, heartfelt contribution.
