While You Were Sleeping

While you were sleeping, I sat by your bed.

I watched you as you smiled through your dreams.

I traced your perfect shell ear,

Touched every curl On your little head.

I tried to sleep But the sound of your breathing

drew me back to your room.

I couldn't resist The magic which tugged

At my heartstrings And brought me to your side.

I settled on the floor Once again.

Back against the wall,

Holding your tiny hand in mine.

While you were sleeping

I fell in love with you all over again.
