I look at him as I lie in the crook of his arm. Peace. The soft rise and fall of his chest as he drifts gently into sleep.
His eyelashes as they almost touch his cheek.He softly sighs.
I resist the temptation to breathe. To think. I wonder if he heard them. The voices in my head.
He moves. Encircles me closer.
His eyes are open now. He smiles. His voice husky with sleep he says, " Hello!"
Laughter begins to bubble at my throat. The twinkle moves from my eyes and settles in my heart. He had me before hello.
