I woke to hear you

whimper in your sleep.

I pulled you close to me

and held you til you sighed.

You snuggled close to me

and ruubbed your face against my chest.

The bad dream was gone

and we slept the rest of the night.
When I wake at night

and touch your shoulder,

you turn to me,

put your arm over over me

and pull me close.

When we lie still

I can feel your heartbeat.

It is at these times

I know how much I love you.

When you sleep lying against me,

with no cares or worries,

I am more content with my life

than at any other time.

Of all the ways you love me

and all the ways you show me your love,

there is none greater than when you sleep

pressed against me

and I can feel your heart beat.
