Morning Silhouette

Tonight, as I fall asleep,
I will reach for your hand,
Close my eyes and press it to my lips.
I will pray that when I wake
Your closed eyes, your dreamy sighs
Will be the silhouette within my bed.
 
I’ll watch your breath—
Count each rise and fall in early morning light,
Praying it goes on forever,
Hoping that in your dreams
You’re walking with me,
Holding my hand,
Not needing to speak, only to touch….
Waking together under the same morning sun.
