To my sleeping husband

Note to my hub followers: Normally I write historical hubs. Occasionally I write poetry when the muse strikes me, but I usually post on my own personal blog for only friends to read. This is the first time I felt inclined to share on a forum such as this. I may feel inclined in the future to post poetry. I don't know.


The sound of your heartbeat and the rhythm of your light snores

The scent of the linger aftershave and deodorant mingled with mouthwash and tooth paste

The feel of the weight of your arm as you hold me close, pulling me into your safety

Fills me with joy and love

I know I am secure with you sleeping next to me

Nothing can harm me

When you are there

Even in the vast darkness of night

I know without even opening my eyes

That you will protect me

Should the nightmares come and I wake in fright

Should I have a sleepless night

The steadiness of your breathing tells me that you will be near me

I can sleep

Knowing that I love you and am loved by you
