    i stayed awake to watch you sleep last night
    to see how you're treated in your dreams
    i admired every ebony inch of your face
    watched it caressed by soft moonbeams...

    i sat up in this chair all night and waited
    appointed myself guardian of your peace
    the longer it was, the quieter the room
    the more my wanting increased...

    i wanted to make love to you.
    i wanted to wake you up that way.
    but i gazed down, still as stone
    content to just watch until time brought day.

    everything that you are when awake;
    strong and stubborn and hard;
    i didn't see any of that last night.
    you finally dropped your guard.

    somebody bothered you in your dreams
    and you turned, tossed, and called out.
    i touched your face with one finger alone
    and silenced the cries in your mouth.

    you didn't even know it was me.
    you just let go and gave in to what felt right.
    so when i need to protect you
    like lovers sometimes do
    i just sit in this chair
    by the bed
    all night.
    --peace. MsDy
