    I have a quiet place to rest for you
    A place that nourishes the infant mind
    Where soft hills of silky lavender soothe the savage soul
    Come sit in the valley of my lily fields
    And nestle yourself amongst the giving trees
    Trees where the fruit is not forbidden
    but tantalizingly teasing to the natural suckling reflex of a child
    Where the most erotic of dreams run wild
    With the hope of erecting skyscrapers of nourishment and pleasure.
    Lay your dreams within the lap of my heart
    And listen to the rhythmic song of life beat wildly
    within my mountainous caves of desire
    and hum your own tune of ecstasy within the safety of my net.
    Better yet, be silent and let love’s melody rock you
    until sleep befalls you like night on the afternoon sun.
    Rest in my treasure chest of wishes that only you can fulfill.
    Dreams that only you can enter, desires that are only inspired by you.
    Rest in my bosom and find
    Peace.

    This is a soft & sweet peace/piece.

    It reminds me of the spiritual song written by Cleland McAfee that is entitled "There is a place of quiet rest".

    Thank you for sharing.
