Don't Go To Bed Alone

Updated on June 15, 2011

Wait I Am Coming Honey

Life is a funny thing

When we are growing up we have our own beds

Every night we go to sleep we dream or that is what the experts say

Then as we get older and find someone to love

We get married and then for the rest of our lives changes

As couples we sometimes go to bed at different times because of work schedules and uncontrollable circumstances

But for the most part we sleep together

Sharing our sleep time with the person we love

Even if our eyes are closed while our bodies lie next to each other like two logs in a fire

So close that we are sure to heat up in a very short time

How nice it is when one of us is cold and the other one is as warm as a radiator

Yes I am the one with the cold feet that I can't wait to tuck them into her warm body

She stirs a little when the chill first shocks her but then after a quick Honey what the ?

You get the idea

I look forward to wrapping my arm around her and holding her lightly

Gently reminding her that I am here

I am by your side and loving you every minute

Then a strange thing happens I want to roll over and go to sleep

I have to face the window and she has to face the wall

I was so happy spooning her and feeling my heart beat against her back

Why would I move away if I was so comfortable and satisfied ?

I am not sure but I have to roll away to the outer edge of the bed

When I wake up I once again move in for position

Like a line backer going into formation

Feeling right at home and so secure knowing you are there

It is if I have never left from my original spot

When I have to work late and my wife is already in bed

I look forward to snuggling close

I often talk to her when she is asleep and let her know how much I love her

I rub her back and shoulders because who doesn't love to be rubbed

She sometimes lets out a light breath of air and then goes back to breathing normal

At other times I scratch her head because that is one of her favorite loves

Then more often than not I do a funny combination of all of the above

I give her the security and reassurance that I am here

The next day I will ask her and she says she doesn't remember a thing

I know I comfort her in dream land and I can travel whereever she goes

In ten years of marriage I can honestly say we never try to sleep apart

I hear horror stories of the husband sleeping on the couch for punishment for something he has done

Take away my computer

I will go to bed without supper

But I love you too much to ever go without your body next to mine

I think of all the things we do all during the day together

Now at night I want even more alone time again

I can never seem to get enough of you

That is a great thing

Marriage has so many positives and this one is on the top of my list

I do not go to bed for the wonderful hot passionate sex

At least for the time being but I am sure it is still somewhere in my mind

I come to bed for your closeness and companionship which I adore

I can easily forget anything bad that happened all day

You are my secret tylenol in a bottle

There are some things I have a tough time explaining to you

I have tried to tell you in a few short words what you mean to me

I try to show you during the daylight hours

I whisper my love to you at night

Whether you hear me or not my love is always in plain sight

So goodnight my honey dream of us tonight

      Charlu I think that special someone is there for everyone.I am not sure how to attract that person faster.I think when you open your heart up for love love comes faster.When you feel the hurt you close your deepest and sincerest emotions and loneliness sets in.It might be time to let that heart sing.One only love knows.That will make your toes curl and wonder how could I have gone without.Thanks so much.

      Bellawritter23 Now that is so special and loving.How children can fill the empti ness in our heart.I am sure you will find the love that will comfort you and please you in every way.I too have lost my love in the past and I found it on a couch that opened into a bed that I stopped opening for the bed.It just wasn't the same.I would hug my pillow instead.Thanks for sharing and making me see what I never could see.Our days only get better because we want them too.Never stop wanting.Thanks for being a friend.

      This is very sweet I wish more thought like this and felt the same way you do. After my divorce I started to sleep on the couch I felt at ease there it was small and no room to move in my bed it felt lonely and empty my son has to pry me off the couch and cry for me to go to my bed so I may have lost my partner to love and sleep next to but what more could I ask then my own precious child that has given me the warmth I needed.

      smiles :)

      I showed this to my fiance, which started a fabulous discussion and it ended in a loving embrace and tears of happiness, we agree, of course, with everything you have said here, going to sleep with my soulmate next to me is beyond any high and neither of us sleep very well apart. thank you for this fantastic hub :)
