Lovers To Sleep

****

In the depth of midnight
Seconds tick your heartbeat away
As your fingers caress my hair
My face
My neck

You sigh
Breathe
Snuggle deep
Your warmth a sign of comfort

As your arm wraps around my chest
A hand trickles across my stomach
Rests on my hip
And the world settles
As sleep comes
Unbidden yet welcome
Warm
Safe
Serene

****
