Missing Me

Here I sleep alone, my choice of course,

 Just down the hall my man sleeps,

He slumbers away and here I sleep by myself

Of course I could swallow my pride and

 Lay down by his side but at whose price?

 Gentle snoring noises comes from his room

 I get up and shut the damn door 

Is he missing me? The warmth of my scent

As I lay next to him, probably

Doesn't even notice I'm gone

Laying face up staring at nothing,

 I wish I were back in my own bed 

The, couch and all its lumps is putting

 My spirits in the dumps

 Sleeping so soundly,

 I wonder if I tiptoe into his room,

 Would he notice if I lay down beside him

  Quietly, easing my way along a darkened hallway,

 I stop, take a deep breath and slowly open the door,

 My man sits up opens his arms

 All my thoughts are gone

 Guess I won't be sleeping alone 

My man's look says it all,

 No apology needed

 Together lying wrapped in each other's arms

 We drift off to sleep, him snoring and me smiling,

 He missed me after all

"He missed me after all"--is the most insightful line, to me. We all need to be needed.

Sleeping on the couch is the ultimate gesture of trouble in a relationship--believe me, I know ;) It's good to see that the trouble was resolved. Thank you!

i am sure everyone can relate to this....... sometimes it would be nice if they just made the gesture and tip toed in,and said Darling i am so missing you, it is so cold without, is there anything i can do for you? Ah well at least you did not get a cold shoulder. I love honest words like this, there should be more. Loved it
