Sleep beside me
Late into the night the talks drift to anything and everything, sensible and insensible alike.
Jesting, laughing and making less sense as the night plays on.
Finally settling with you wrapped in my arms. You tell me you feel safe and I squeeze you just a little tighter for a moment. Drifting off to sleep feeling comfortable and at ease...
Arousing with the mornings first glimmer of light through the window, the sun almost peaked over the horizon.
We have shifted but still you lay in my arms asleep. I enjoy your visage. Your face is calmed, beautiful and peaceful.
