Love explained

We Knew

by Willie P. Smith

Poem about Love Contest Winner 
I awoke last night
From a restful sleep,
And glanced at you
Lying quietly beside me.

I whispered, I love you,
Softly in your ear.
I pictured a smile upon your face,
Although I could not see.

I thanked you in a whisper,
For being what you are
And sharing your love,
All these years.

I placed your hand in mine
And squeezed it gently.
I kissed your cheek,
As I moved closer to you.

When I attempted to move away,
You would not release my hand.
And sweetly responded,
I love you too.

In that moment,
Although no more words were spoken.
We returned to peaceful sleep,
Because, we knew----

(Written for my deceased wife in 1982)
