Sleep Now My Love
Author: Rick Ryckman


At first light when my dreams started long ago.
There is a special place in my heart.
That cast its magical spell.
Tonight my thoughts are of you.
There is no distance and time between us.
Wrapped in you pure innocence.
We will soar toward the heavens.
Gliding on the winds of ecstasy.
I will stay and quietly watch you sleep.
As you ---- lay in the warmth of my embrace.

to sleep in the arms of a man who watches over you with such love. MMMMMMMM. So lovely. Very sweet, very romantic, very nice....

Ascent to Heaven's highest summit.

The first time a woman, whom I loved, slept in my arms 'til morning when the sun had risen, I realized that I had been blessed with the total trust of this miraculous young creature who felt absolutely safe, knowing that I would protect her with my life. I'll never forget how happy I was with that understanding, and how right it seemed. It was as if everything in the world, which together, we viewed from above, was as it should be.

On top of all that, it was Saturday morning.

This beautiful write returned my thoughts to that time in my life. Thanks.

to watch a loved one sleep..a forever embrace ...

ohhh have built the trust to place your life ,in anothers hands,()while in their warm embrace)as the lay awake watchin' you as you sleep, is an overall glorious feelin',and just like Bip shared ..your thoughts alone, in the form of words , takes us places where we've been , no matter the duration . with so much peace drawn you reunited us with those comfortable embracin' moments of infinite feelin's..Rick this was Beautiful !!!
