So Peacefully

You sleep so peacefully -
in seeming shifts of depth
where dreams begin to form
within their search
for this reality of flesh;
that I cannot help but wonder why
this endless nighttime sky allows
the unknowingness of sleep
to come at all.

Yet oh, my dear, this feel of love
so clearly streams through all our dreams,
that wondering must be conceived
as no more than a mental scheme
of intellect beholding more
than ever it has known before.

For night ascends so peacefully,
and we sleep again, to seek
this dream come true . . .
