A Moment

In the perfect stillness
of a quiet moment,
as I feel your acquired warmth
nestled softly against me,
your head resting on my chest,
breathing steady, deep and slow;
it is then that we come to know
the peace and comfort
of two souls at ease,
of two hearts beating,
of two sets of limbs, set to please,
at rest at once,
and that nearness
fills the room, fills our heads,
and fills the whole world,
even if only for a moment.
