I wake up in a cold sweat.
A moment of blur, until I open my eyes
And feel a body next to mine...
Here he lies, his arm protective around me
I feel comforted with his steady heartbeat.
Staring at his sleeping face... I smile.
I trace his skin with my fingers.
His silken hair tousled over his eyes
He mumbles softly, as I call his name...
I move closer to whisper it in his ear.
He tightens his hold on me, as I rest my head on his
Our bodies in a marriage of entangled sheets.
Eyes still closed, he says he's hungry,
I kiss him on his nose, ask him what he'd like...
A cheeky smile, one eye open...
He enfolds me into him.
Warmth and butterflies multiply
as he rains kisses on me...
