Lie down beside me
and tell me about your day,
tell me about that guy who was a jerk to you,
tell me how the weather today was too hot,
tell me about the times when you missed me.
Stay awake beside me
and take my hand in yours,
take me in your arms,
take your time, I’ll wait,
take away anything that you want.
Fall asleep beside me
and I’ll be there with you,
looking out for the monsters,
looking into your sleepy face,
looking over you for as long as you need me.
