Safe Haven

She closed her eyes

And drifted,


Through the safe haven

Of warm arms,

And dreamed of


And coos

And sun,

And all the smiles

That feed

Her heart

And mind.

    • Yay! Blokes can be gooey!! ‘Tis good for one to do the occasional puddle-of-gooey-awweeee – men or women or whatever. πŸ™‚
      Isn’t much lovelier than a small one sleeping one one’s chest. We’re programmed to go ‘awwwwwww’ πŸ˜‰
