Fall asleep beside me

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.

    Comforting words that lets one know they are not alone, stay with me and I’ll stay with you statement. Long distance or next door, the words carry the impact that love stays with them when they sleep and the ending lines specify that. Beautifully written…always.♥️♥️
