In the moonlight....

The curtains drawn,
The lights switched off.

Yet, streaming in,
the moon light
casts a shadow.
A shadow so gentle
and beautiful.

A shadow of you.
Of you asleep.
Asleep, lying by
my side.

Your gentle breathing
makes me smile.
I smile and turn.
Turn, to look at you.
At you, through
the crook of my arms.

Then you smile.
Smile, perhaps
because you are
happy and content.

Content with me
by your side.
The shadow casts
a lovely picture.
A picture of you
and me.

Of you with me.
Of me with you.

Of us in the
