"Is It Okay?"

By: darkdreamerx


It is okay for me

to watch you sleep?

See the rising and falling

of your chest.

Is it okay for me

to rest my head against you?

Listen to the steady sound

of your heart beating.

Is it okay for me

to trail my fingers across your face?

Gently touching the soft skin

and smiling at your peaceful state.

Is it okay for me

to press my lips against yours?

So softly that they barely touch

but the love is still lingering when we part.

Is it okay for me

to love you with everything I have?

Because when we're this close,

it's okay; it's just perfect.
