can you please read me the end again?------Sunday Scribblings

calmly laying against your back
my arm encirling you
I follow your breathing
the steadiness of it
tells me of your contented sleep
soothed by it
I draw patterns on your back
smiling a little

"was it only a while back
you were reading me from a book
and I was mocking you at your choice
laughing on your face

you were so annoyed at me that
you threw down the book
and walked out on me
only to be on this sacred place
shared by us both"

kissing you softly on your neck
I fall asleep, my heart following yours
in its rhythmic beat.

"can you please read me the end again?"

Oh, I live the tactile aspect to this poem!

It reminded me of when my mom had cancer a few years ago and I'd sit up most of the night reading to her even after she fell asleep.

this brought to mind two beautiful memories, Me always reading outloud to my husband in bed, "can you please read me the end again?" brought back the memory of tucking in our kids each night with many minutes of reading to them.
