Gold in Silence


Twilight seeps through the window

I wake to feel your arm’s embrace

As you move closer to snuggle

Your beard tickles my face

Crickets chirping birds singing

You cross one leg over mine

Crows cawing air conditioner humming

Morning has arrived on time

Suddenly everything is completely still

Except for the beat of your heart

For a few seconds, there’s golden silence

Then the moment departs

All previous sounds rush in

As daylight invades the dawn

Your roll away release your embrace

I give a sigh and yawn

Birds begin singing praise

To the Amighty
