You Are Here

Your head
upon my
breast as you sleep

and
this is

nice,

your
steady breathing
calming me

your strong
heartbeat
grounding me

We feel as One…

You are here

and I pray
that I can keep
your demons at bay
while you sleep,

my King,
so you can slay
my dragons
by day
when you wake.

you twitch,
i soothe your hand
and whisper,
“It’s okay… shhhh…”
in your ear

your sleeping
body obeys,
peace

I smile
and hope
for it to
always be this way
