As He Sleeps
25 December, 2001
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


He lies there sleeping, unknowing
The meaning his love brings to my life
The warmth in my heart makes me smile
As I love him unconditionally

I watch him sleeping beside me
I lean over close to his ear
"I Love you so much" I say quietly
"I love you too" he sleepily replies

Try again .... I love how a poem can mean something different to different people when they read it. It is about my husband and he is very much alive :)

Can Poets use each others eyes and hearts?

Becky, I was acturlly, trying to see if, you had presented your beautiful song, House Of Mirroos," when I saw, As He Sleeps.
, As He Sleeps.

As you know, I wrote a poem called, "Even As She Sleeps," when I read this I thought, love is truly, a universal language!

Without saying, I think my sleeping angel, is prettier, than you sleeping warrior, but in the end, love is the same. I know how you felt then when you wrote this and how you feel now, as best I can, for the now part, anyway.
