lost at sea

"I laid my head upon your sleeping chest
and listened to the ocean.
Like a little girl
with her ear pressed against a shell.

I laced my fingers with yours and felt the ache
of a thousand years of wisdom.
Like an old woman 
with her eyes crinkled by time and enlightenment.

I blinked my eyes against the sunlight
that draped itself against your velvet skin.
Like a newborn
reaching self awareness.

I was lost at sea inside your arms
and had never felt so found."
