In The Quiet Hours

©2014 Louise Gallagher

Sometimes, in the quiet hours
before dawn
breaks the day
wide open
I lie beside you
and stare into
your face

Sometimes, I wish
you would awaken
and catch me
silently falling
into love
watching you
beside me.

And then, I kiss
your lips
and slip
from between the cover
of night leaving
its soft embrace
enveloping you.

And I rise
to greet the day
in the knowing
I am with you
in Love.
