I reach for you in the dark of night

when I am alone

My bed has never seemed so big

or so empty

I long for the warmth of your body

in the space next to me

I close my eyes and inhale

what must be your scent

I lay my head on your chest

and listen to the sound of you

Your arm pulls me in

and I am at ease….

And I wait

endlessly

for you

tonight
