T-Day plus 12


Skin on skin,

Little snuffling breaths reassuring me of her presence,

Her legs and arms bunched up, a perfect little package,

Her head resting on my arm, her impossibly soft hair.

Lying on the sofa,

Drifting in and out of snooze,

Gazing out of the window at

The whispering breeze

Through the leaves

Of the sun-dappled trees.

A moment,

An endless moment…

Is there anything more blissful?
