Wanted

you are wanted in these arms
entwined in blissful embrace
the thuds of beating hearts rejoicing
joined in flesh and spirit
night clothes these eyes
though asleep, we’re still connected
moving in between dreams
like lovers strolling hand in hand
oblivious to the world yet aware
of the infinite stars captured and reflected
on eyes where love shines

she wraps silence around her
like a cloak to repel the noise
the nagging sounds that buzz
muted by silence’s embrace
smiling her smile
in the stillness that follows
the quiet she has longed for
the bed of peace her body rests upon
a bier that cradles her earth bound flesh
