She woke, to find herself,

watched over by his heart,

wrapped in his arms

Stretching and purring like a cat against his chest,

only to press herself in more


She settled into his open embrace

a place, intended by him,

to let her rest,

to take in the morning

silence,  glow

to come to life,  day by day

in this embrace

posed against the morning

to let her set the day

set their lives

they painted with their minds

using their words

lead by feeling

day by day, posed against the morning

in the comfort of his shelter
