It’s 6 am and I want to be lying next to you
with out hands locked together,
and our legs intertwined.
I want your face buried in my neck,
and I want to listen to your breathing.
I want you to wake up and tell me
“I’m so tired”
because I want to whisper
“Go back to sleep”
and I want to hold you tighter when you do.
I want to lie in bed alone with you,
in the comforting quiet of the early morning hours,
and maybe read a book while you sleep.
I want to be simple with you,
and I want to be whatever you need me to be.
