(Untitled poem)

0

softly

ever so gently

no other words

have crept upon me

unknowing as now,

unaware

i have been caught up

in warm embrace

that fills me

and waiting

i lie

comforted

by the assurance

of your memory

lingering within me

i feel

as though i now

have reached

a harbor

one peaceful cove

in starlit sea

guarded by moon

and trees

weathering all storms

i rest

at peace with earth

no troubles

bother me

i long for

a chance

that i might return

in full measure running over,

myself.
