Nightwatch

Sonnets

Texte: Still asleep under the warm covers – Every Day by Thomas A Clark

Her gentle breathing joined the fading sun
and flustered eyelids tell a dream’s begun
Encased beneath the rippled flowing quilt
The night’s destiny revealed within sleep
In subconscious realms the future is built
And as she sleeps beside my watching eyes
Each breath falls softly on my waiting hand
For in the night my love bears no disguise
As in her dreams she sees a warrior stand
The listener who hears the silent sighs
That linger, silver in the moonlight’s gilt
And when the dawn begins to slowly creep
Across the sky and o’er the waking land
I’ll join her in sleep for my work is done
