Portrait

Bathed in the early morn's golden light
Your arms wrapped around the space where I laid last night
Cheek on my pillow glows warm with sleep
And your brow, slightly wrinkled, occupied by some dream.

The sheets make a canvas of white
Beneath your shining, perfect skin
Etched into my mind - this beautiful portrait of a man.


Brushstrokes of hair fall around you; half a smile graces your lips
The trusting sprawl of limbs....
Through the window, a cool summer breeze
Sweetens the air you breathe

The sheets make a canvas of white
Beneath your shining, perfect skin
Etched into my mind - this beautiful portrait of a man.


I'm tired, and my body is weak
But I'm so full of this picture, and so far away from sleep.....

The sheets make a canvas of white
Beneath your shining, perfect skin
Etched into my mind - this beautiful portrait of a man.

I'll always keep... this beautiful portrait of a man.
