Close your eyes
Like the dusk,
Slowly into sleep
Like the sun
Sinks in the sea
Beyond sky's end.

Curl up your feet
Under you-
A bird
Nesting her egg.

The queen of dreams
To send
A symphony to caress your eyes,
Like the morning breeze
Stirs a sleepy leaf,
Just this much.

Be the peace on you,
As on a mother
When on her first born
Smiles play.

Your bosom
With each deep and even breath-
A boat left free
On the gentle waves
Of a placid sea.

With me watching by your side,
My fingers caught up in your hair,
While shadows of the moon paint
Your face dark, and then so fair.
A faint smile curls your lips
As I wipe worries off your brow,
God must be in his heaven above
As all is well below.

Anand Madhukar

"Laughter is day, and sobriety is night; a smile is the twilight that hovers gently between both, more bewitching than either."
~Henry Ward Beecher
