Let Me Slumber

Under the stars, the grass is cool against my fevered skin.

You are in silhouette, but I know your breath as it warms me.

The fireflies dance, as if in celebration.

The breezes carry your scent to me.

I’m intoxicated by the night.

If in a dream, let me slumber.

I do not wish the daylight to intrude.
