this makes sleeping,
inside your slender,
the beginning song of life:
the shoving of sudden fur;
your own quaking;
and the collapsed nerve.
and the each new little thing of it
makes life in smooth jolts.
love as a woman,
who wears within,
our love in something
quickly with 10 fingers
10 toes and grows
inside that hive
where my love as flesh
(alive) and i,
the sleeping dawn:
wide white awake.
our small shoulders;
who's naked makes
our heart perspire
1 leaf of grass.
you are gold.
your hair is.
your mouth does.
and have always.
love kiss laughter sleep argue sweat dream kiss kissing inside laughter
you are there
you are something
i think that you are easily dreamless.
you are the white
turning over of pale morning
into your neck and the pooled freshness of your breasts.
you are these two things:
my hands–which make within
themselves bloodsong and wine.
finely twined with pale wire,
your eyes rest below your scalp:
they are chips of ice–limpid; nude.
(you stir you pull your hand into my
hand i kiss over the sleeping of your
white cheeks i stroke your golden hair
i slip my leg under your leg:
I can never touch enough of you.)
I know I tell you this all the time, but I love you so much. I'm so unbelievably thankful to have you in my life. You are the most perfect woman I have ever met.
I know you are sleeping right now, and I know it's the most beautiful thing on this earth, because I have watched you sleep, curled up next to me. The neat calmness of your face, the way your hair falls across your cheek–I love it, I love it so much.
I want to be prefect for you. I want to make you happy and fill every moment of your life with joy.
I feel stupid. These words just aren't what I want them to be. I wish I could truly tell you how much I care about you, but I just can't seem to put it the right way.
You are always within me. You are within my blood and soul. You are within every pulse of my heart, every lash of sunlight, every strain of laughter that passes from my lips.
I'm going to do my best to love you and treat you with the care and respect that you deserve. I know I'm not perfect, but please know that I am trying to be better.
I wish I could kiss you. I wish I was laying next to you tonight. I wish I could kiss your brow, and nuzzle you with my nose. I wish I could lay my hand across your skin and feel the heat of it pour through my skin.
Sleep softly and soundly, my love. I will think and dream of you tonight.
I hope you read this in the morning. I hope that some small amount of what I want to say comes through this to you.
I will think about you tomorrow while I'm at work. I will imagine the feeling of your hand in mine. I will remember the warm smell of your chest. I will think of you and love you, and my love will guide me to work hard and honestly. To do what ever I need to do to make our life as good as it can be.
I love you so much. Sleep well. I can't wait to see you again.
