Sleeping beside you is the safest feeling I’ve ever known.
I love how you warm my feet with yours
and how you’d scoot backwards all the way in bed
til you’re snugly fit by my side,
til you feel my lips on your shoulder.
I love the way you hold my hand when I slide it over your middle from behind.
I love how deeply you sleep because then, you’re unaffected by the tossing and turning from my light sleeping.
Sometimes, we just hold hands while we’re asleep.
I like that too.
Sometimes when you stir, you check on me and kiss my forehead;
I always wake up when that happens.
You’re my perfect sleeping buddy.
