[POEM] tonight it will be

tonight it will be

tonight it will be her snores
that will lull me to sleep
instead of the never ending dialogue
I have with myself

tonight it will be her face in my neck
while I will gently rub her small body
instead of spooning another
or wrapping arms around myself

tonight it will be dreams of riding
a blue helicopter, friendly snakes and monsters
instead of the constant nightmares of loss, once again a reality
because she told me to have good dreams tonight

tonight it will be you and me, little one
you are safe here with me
and I am safe too
knowing I am all you need
to take away the pain
