It's 6 am and I want to be lying next to you
with our hands locked together,
and our legs intertwined.

I want your face buried in my neck.
and I want to listen to your breathing.

I want you to wake up and tell me,
"I'm so tired,"
because I want to whisper
"Go back to sleep,"
and I want to hold you tighter when you do.

I want to lie in bed alone with you,
in the comforting silence of the early morning hours,
and maybe read a book while you sleep.

I want to be simple with you.
