When Sleep Came Easily

Reach for me with your solid arms
Pull me in to your breath
Let me feel you wrapped around me,
As the autumn’s breeze skims across the surface
Of a dream once dreamed
When sleep came easily.

A dream of sweet love,
Crescendo of a warm summer afternoon
In utter nakedness moving in harmony
Heated sheets,
Cool tiled floors.
Laughter, long gone.

But remembered
Always.
