I love the scent of waking up next to you. Yes, the scent. The mixture of your body and mine under the covers all night creates a sweet scent that I cannot resist. I sometimes wake up and literally smell you. Odd you might think, but it’s the best thing. I start with your forehead, slide my face against yours as I make my way down to your nose and your lips. I stay here for a while and steal some kisses.
Your silence can complete a sentence.
It’s that look in your eyes that speaks louder than words.
The cadence of your breath puts me at ease.
We have come here, together, as one.
And we still question, what is love?
It’s human to doubt, though we’re committed.
