Bed and Blanket

Unexpectedly you slept
you fell easily and fast
Wide awake I watched you dream
your snores were reassuring
in my arms and on my chest
your naked flesh against me
I kissed your head, stroked your cheek
heard you mumble something
words unknown but meaningful
a muscle spasm, a twitch
R.E.M. was in your eyes
back to la la land you went
unexpectedly you slept
in my arms and on my chest
made me feel all warm inside
that I whispered “I love you”
