I woke up in the middle of the night to
find you there, lying on your stomach,
a beautiful sweet dreams smile, legs slightly
apart and your arms underneath the pillow.
I just wanted to make sure the noise of the night
doesn’t wake you up. I just wanted to wrap myself
around you like a blanket to make sure you were
warm enough. I just realized I want to kiss you
goodnight every night.
You were so peaceful and I just gave you a kiss
on the back of your neck, making sure I don’t
disrupt your dream. As I closed my eyes I felt
your arms wrapping around my waist and you
said: “My dreams are always about summertime
because you are next to me smelling like coconuts.”
