Touched By An Angel

As we lay next to each other, I see you for who you truly are.
You sleep like an angel, gently breathing as your halo acts like a pillow.
You breathe so gently and calmly.
You don’t move, the world never disturbing you as you drift into the sweetest of dreams.
But if only you knew my dream is alive.
I don’t need to sleep to see it.
All I have to do is open my eyes and look at you.
I feel tears start to build as I see you sleeping.
I never want to wake you up.
I wish I could see you sleep forever.
But then you wake up, and smile as your hand runs through my hair.
We slide closer and you kiss my forehead.
And then all I do is cry.
You wipe the tears away and kiss me on my trembling lips.
We’re so close I can feel your heart, your soul, your life.
I never want this moment to end.
The one time I was so happy.
In your arms, drifting to a gentle being.

I liked it, and I know the feeling.  But it seemed too... cheesy to me.  Like I knew what would be coming.  It's a good start but maybe you could change things up, make it more personal to you and him.  If that makes sense.
