A True Goodnight


Robert Brian Newbill

I watched the tranquil slumber
Of she who is my love
All the ghosts from my past have vanished
All thoughts of blame or failure
Are very distant from me now
I turned off the light
And raised the window
So careful not to awaken her
Gently I slipped into bed
By the moonlight I could see her
As if for the very first time
I reached to softly wake her
She already knew that I was there
We held each other, oh so tight…
We became as one
It felt so right
As need paralleled desire
In the immense complexity of love.
