The Comfort

…….when my boyfriend sleeps before I do and begins to snore.

He’s still breathing. He’s still alive.

One thing that breaks my heart is the thought of the chance that he will die at any one time.

Waking up at 0530 everyday for 1 minute to text him(or if I do wake up early before he leaves for work to say it to him), “be safe I love you” keeps me at peace.

Peace in my heart that he will be safe and that I love him.

His reply, “I will. Go back to sleep bao, I’ll see you later. Love you more.” eases me a little.

I get excited when he texts me at night. Not because “oh my boyfriend texted me”

But because “thank god my boyfriend is alive”
