Nighttime by Toni L.A Clegg

I drift awake in darkness sweet

My toes caress your sleeping feet

I feel and hear your slumbering sigh

And swiftly how the hours fly

My fingers tangled in your hair

Our breath is mingling in the air

Together curled beneath the sheets

I feel your pulse, your heart it beats

My thoughts are far and yet so near

With hopes as poignant as my fear

Wondrous Fragile Mortal Thing

I posted this poem on my other blog, but thought it would also be appropriate to share it here.

Really Do Come True

Wondrous fragile mortal thing

Safely hidden in my womb

How you cause my heart to sing

How you make my soul take wing

Freshly woven flesh on loom

Wondrous fragile mortal thing

And yet I feel fear’s harsh sting

Defying whispers from the tomb

How you cause my heart to sing

Joy anew morning will bring

Breaking through these years of gloom

Wondrous fragile mortal thing

To this hope I firmly cling

Resisting dark, fighting doom

How you cause my heart to sing

Here you are now, my offspring

Tender bud about to bloom

Wondrous fragile mortal thing

How you cause my heart to sing
