I had already fallen asleep when he came in from work. Lately he had been falling asleep in his chair watching tv. Tonight he came in like always, ate the food I had made for the night and headed to the bathroom to get his shower. An hour later he came back into the bedroom and sacred me when he came to get in bed, I started to relax when I remember he was home from work. Once in the bed he began to move closer to me. My back was to his side of the bed; he moved closer to me and put his arm around me and pulled me closer to him. “Babe I’m really tired tonight.”
“I’m not here for that; I just came to hold you in my arms tonight. Those nights that I fell asleep out on the chair have been the worst nights of sleep that I have ever had. I’ve missed you being right next to me and I just wanted to hold you tonight.”
I moved closer to him getting more comfortable and relaxed. Remembering the way his arms feel around me, I began to drift back to sleep. He kissed me on my head, “I love you,” he whispered in my ear and feel asleep holding on to me all night long.
