You are my resting place


You are my morning sun
and I want to grow old with you
and I want to share
every next morning in my life with you
and I want to see the love in your eyes
when you look at me
and I want to feel your caress
like a warm fuzzy blanket.

I want you to whisper my name in your dreams
as you are in all of my dreams
and I want to hear your heartbeat
as my heart does beat only for you
and I want to grow old with you.

You are the rainbow
after the storms of my life
and I want to see the silver
in your hair one day
and I want to be in your arms
for many sunsets
and I want to count the days
and celebrate a lot of nights
and I want you to want me
as I do want you
and I want to see you smile
over a cup of hot coffee in the mornings
and I want to know if all your kisses are real
and I want to see the silver
in your hair one day.

You are my valley and my resting place
and a shelter from myself
and I want to love you
forever and a day
but most of all
I want you to love me too.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
