Night Falls

The silent footsteps of night approach
and, peeping through our
windows,
the moon finds us sleeping,
wrapped in each other’s arms.

Sliding graceful fingers of light
across your peaceful face,
the moon
caresses your pleasant features,
and strokes your hair. 
You murmur
quietly in your sleep
and reach for my naked body,
pulling me tightly
to your chest. 
The moon kisses your cheek softly
and moves across the
room, slowly ,
to watch a while longer,
before fading silently from view.

The sun replaces the shadows,
and kisses our satisfied faces good
morning. 
Another day presents itself,
entirely for our enjoyment.
