I’ve never done a Five Minute Friday post before, but I thought I’d give it a try… Here we go!
Sometimes I just lie there, listening to him breathe in the depths of sleep.
My eyes are open, as if they are afraid to close.
He has no idea that I’m awake.
Would he notice if I wasn’t there?
Should I go read in the living room so I don’t disturb him?
I just want to be here next to him, to feel his chest rise and fall under my hand.
How did I end up here?
This wasn’t what I had planned at all.
I had no idea someone like him could fall for someone like me.
God obviously wasn’t paying attention that day.
He couldn’t have meant for this to happen.
I am so far past happy, but is he?
Does he need me here next to him?
“Come here” he whispers, and pulls me into his arms.
And now I know that this is right where I belong.
