Touch me - sleep

I lay here in deep slumber, feel my breath
upon your face as you lay near me.
Place your fingertips through my hair,
and you wonder what I dream.
Brush up close against me,
you want to feel warmth.
Embrace this space
while I sleep.

me now,
If you please
I want to feel
your tender strong arms.
Your eyes are heavy too.
Together we sleep awhile.
I feel your heart beat like a drum,
so I'm unsure if I'm still sleeping.
I lay here in this moment and enjoy.

4th place win
