This sheltering midnight…

"Sleep, and I’ll be still as another sleeper
Holding you in my arms,
Glad that you lie so still at last.

This sheltering midnight is our meeting place.
No passion or despair or hope divide me from your side.
I will remember firelight on your sleeping face.
I will remember shadows growing deeper
As the fire fell to ashes
And the minutes passed."

***

We’ve been back in time together, you and I.
