[Poetry] Late Nights

For Mikey


The world outside is quiet;
Everything in darkness except your face,
Bathed in the soft glow of my bedside lamp.

On sleepless nights like this I lay;
Listening to your soft sighs, watching your beautiful face,
Long lashes laying against the top of your cheeks.

I lay awake and stare at you;
I smile to myself and marvel,
How lucky I  am you chose me.

I lay awake and stare some more;
I smile to myself and whisper,
I love you.
