I woke to kiss you in your sleep to make your dreams sweet.
I patterned my breath after yours finding peace in unison and life.
I touched you throughout the night with toes and fingertips so my presence would make you feel safe.
I nuzzled my head between your shoulder blades so I'd feel the same.
These intimate and yet simplistic moments were ingredients for the sweetest dreams.
Only I have awoken from nightmares.
