Morning Slumber

Artist Unknown

As the seconds turn to minutes and then hours

I’m lost without you

So use to the comfort of your body next to mine and

Feeling the stark contrast of your hot to my cold touch

I lay here awaiting the moment when I finally hear the car door slam, the alert of you walking through the front door, and your footsteps up the stairs

Then I wait longer as the shower runs and I hear you hum to keep yourself awake

Before finally sliding under the covers and pulling me into your embrace

Turning I wrap my arms around you as your head finds the perfect pillows and nestles comfortably on my chest

Now suddenly my body feels the relaxing of its limbers that eluded it all night and my eyes become heavy

Slowly closing in a tranquil state as I no longer feel the need to be awake

The cure for my insomnia is now next to me and as the world stirs

We take a satisfying deep breath and begin a much needed slumber

Together
