In my sleep I float out from under my covers and I find my way to you

In my sleep I cradle myself into your arms and bury my face in your chest

In my sleep, I hear your breathing like music to my ears and feel your heartbeat like the very blood pulsating inside of me

In my sleep I feel your hands on me
In my sleep I noticed that I have stopped dreaming

Maybe it’s because I’m not asleep

I notice I have stopped dreaming because I’m not asleep

I’m not asleep because I can hear your gentle snoring and feel your thick hair between my fingers

I’m not asleep because I can smell your skin right under my nose

I’m not asleep because you’re here,  right next to me, and you’re here to stay
