My eyes may be closed
But I feel your arms tight around me
Protecting me from all harm.
I feel you hold me tighter
And I know I must go,
As I step back,
My heart breaks in two.
I look forward to
The late night talks.
Staying up for as long as we can,
Speaking nonsense
Until one of us slips into sleep.
I close my eyes, anticipating
What tomorrow will bring.
