Sleeping Love

I don't sleep so well anymore
not without your chest to rest my arm on
not without your shoulder that's become my favorite pillow
not without your body to keep me warm
the feet that would caress mine
legs that tangled to keep us from falling off a too-small bed
arms that I could spend all night stroking
a caress of your cheek was all it would take to stop your gentle snoring
I'd lean my cheek against your shoulder
your arms wrapped around me
the former pleasure of dreaming
was taken away by the bliss
of being awake with you
