the way you look up at me lying in my lap

     that smile you give when our eyes meet

     the way you grab my hand and kiss it softly

     and place it atop your head

     then you close your eyes

     that smile

     melts a little bit with each breath

     as my fingers dance in your hair

     while you savor every step

     to the rhythm of your soft breath

     your head getting heavier as

     you drift to sleep still lying in my lap

Just You and Me

I just want to be

close to you

anywhere you choose to be

it’s the closest I can get

to heaven on earth

to peace of mind

you relax me

I relax you

it was meant to be

just you and me
