I Want

I want to hear the far off muted roll and roar
Of distant waves crashing on salty shores;
To be wrapped in arms soft and sweet
And heave heavy sighs that meld
With the distant ocean rhythm
And drift to sleep…
Drift to sleep…
To sleep…

I want to hear the lazy whirl of cool mountain breezes
Swirling over rocky crags and distant peaks;
To be surrounded in a contented embrace
And heave heavy sighs that meld
With rhythm of the mountain’s breath
And drift to sleep…
Drift to sleep…
To sleep…

I want to hear the carefree chirping of forest birds
Drifting through the shaded branches of trees evergreen
Cradled in the care of a gentle entwine
And heave heavy sighs that meld
With the rhythm of nature’s chorus
And drift to sleep
Drift to sleep
To sleep…

I want to hear the delicate laughter of a joyous heart
And feel the rise and fall of soft breaths;
To be clutched in the warmth of tender love
And heave heavy sighs that meld
with the rhythm of a beating heart
And drift to sleep
Forever.

My goodness, I am speechless. But just for a moment, because I have to say that this blessed me so much. I need a sabbatical, and you took me there. Your concluding paragraph made me weepy. Well done, David. I want MORE...
