I feel a void tonight,
for I can’t find you by my side.
I reach across the expanse of my bed,
and find emptiness instead.
I miss the presence of your arms,
wrapped tightly around me; keeping me warm.
I miss laying on your chest,
listening to your heartbeat; slowly closing my eyes to rest.
I miss your sweet kisses,
and silent whisper wishes.
I think about us tossing & turning through the night,
and smile, for you were right…
We may sleep less,
but we find peace in the each others caress.
There is a comfort in your presence.
And that is what I miss this night,
as I look for your silhouette against the moonlight.
