Star of the South

Climb in bed
tuck cool sheets
around tired head
stretch your legs
long, curl up tight
let out a yawn
along tender night’s
warm air, drifting
o’er your fair face

my words
embrace
you

you melt
deeper into downy
comfort
those weary eyes
fall heavy
as my lullabies
soothe your cares
away

today
is done
time moves on
tomorrow brings
brand new
things to love

so
sleep

my star of the south

sleep

      1. I’m sure you are now then. You’re right you are West and I’m East. I wrote that after I got up so my brain wasn’t engaged. But either way we go we’ll get there right? 😉
