I Long to Kiss You

I Long to Kiss You 

In these quiet moments
With eyes shut
I feel your breath against my cheek
And I long to kiss you

I touch my hand
To your chest
And feel the steady rise and fall
Of your breathing

Caress your skin
As you sleep
And trace the outline of your body
As it curves beneath the blanket

In these private hours
I close my eyes
Smile softly
And wait for you to wake
