Poet#29 - "Little Fingers"


I am finding it hard

To express a profound feeling

That seems to have swelled

Within my breast

At the touch of your

Little fingers

And I smile at your clumsy,

Delicate mouth,

Unable to smile just yet,

But I smile for the both of us,

Because I know.

I feel this thing,


Something more


Than love

My chest is full

Of my pulsing heart,

And it releases itself

In breathless sighs,

And soft laughs,

While you sleep

In my tired arms,

Under my exhausted smile








The End
