You Are My Resting Place - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

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.
