I lay awake in bed most nights, unable to sleep and unwilling to really try. Just laying in bed with you is better than sleeping. I lay there, thinking about how lucky I have been to call you mine. To wake up in the middle of the night with you by my side. With just enough light in the room to see you, just inches away from me. Occasionally, I just snuggle up closer to you, while other times I just lay there and listen to you sleep. Not in a weird way, but counting my blessings and being grateful for what I have. Certainly, a blessing from above.
