She laid there, his head in her lap, fingers running through his unruly hair. They lay there quietly silence was their peace. No words needed to be spoken.
Her hand trailed down his jaw line and rested on his throat. Sleep almost overcoming her, but he stirred. Turning onto his stomach, her hand now resting on his back.
His arms wrapped around her small frame. The comfort that had always been there still was. And that peace. To spend a day, like this, alone in bed meant the world.
Her fingers traced small patterns on his bare back. The movement sent shivers up his spine, and causing him to sigh deeply. His arms held her tighter, never wanting to let go.
She watched his steady breathing and could feel his heart beat. The rhythm relaxed her senses, her eyes closed, and hand stopped moving. He looked up and saw her asleep.
Amazed at what peace could do to him. He moved his hand to rest under her T-shirt, on her stomach’s soft skin. His fingers grazing over her skin ever so softly.
This was the day he had to tell exactly how he felt. His love for her would never die. She knew it, but he had never told her. Her patience certainly was a virtue. She had waited, for him. Always knowing what was in his heart, but that he didn’t know how to say it.
Glancing at the clock, they only had an hour, he sighed. This feeling was so serene. His fingers stopped moving over her stomach when she stirred.
He sat up leaning in and kissing her soft lips. She was so peaceful as she slept, deep breaths coming in and out of her body.
“What would I do without you?” He breathed out softly, hand running across her cheek. He carefully moved her farther down onto the bed so that she could be more comfortable.
“You’re so good to me.” He whispered, lips brushing hers lightly, once again. He relaxed onto the bed propping his head on his hand. Once again watching her, sleep peacefully.
She rolled over facing him, and snuggled closer to his body. Her warmth enveloped him, and that scent, mmm… He took a deep breath, so intoxicating, only adding more greatness to this peacefulness.
“How I love you.” He whispered an arm wrapping around her. He rested his head on a pillow now. She moved even closer, and he kissed her forehead.
“I won’t ever let you go.” His eyes closed and the same sleep came over him. A sleep filled with promises, never to be broken.
