It's waking up in the middle of the night
for no reason, shifting under the blankets,
and feeling the heat of the person next to you.
You turn around and see them in their most
peaceful, innocent, and vulnerable state.
They breathe as though the weight of the
world lies on anyone's shoulders but their
own. You smile, kiss their face in the most
gentle manner so, as not to wake them.
You turn back around and involuntarily a
grin forms on your own face. You feel an
arm wrap around your waist, and you know,
it doesn't get any better than this.
