How peacefully he sleeps
upon soft, silken sheets
as I bend down to kiss
the warmth from his lips.

So softly he moans
and whispers his final breath
so regal and angelic he looks in death.
I gently caress his curled, auburn hair
praying for the angels to take him in their care.

So peacefully he sleeps
upon soft, silken sheets
and I savour the taste
of his last, warm breath

What God has in sacred marriage
bound
may only be parted in death...
Randomness is random. This was spurred from a comment on my poem "My Winter Bride", of a commenter asking for a woman's point of view instead of it always having to be seen from a male perspective. It got stuck in my mind, and this churned out. Feedback is as always appreciated :)

I truly hope this becomes my fate one day.  That my bond of marriage will only be broken by death.

Ha ha ha! Ya, but in all honesty I want something solid.  I hate how people quit on marriage 98 percent of the time when it gets rough, I want to stick with it and love him until only death could break us apart.
