Sleeping With You

I awakened this morning to find my eyes still moist:

I wondered, "What happened?"

Then I remembered

Reaching for you once again…

Tapping the space next to me…

Feeling the pillow where your head should be.

Sleep is more intimate than sex:

Sleep demands trust, openness, vulnerability but

In a different dimension.

Lying beside someone,

Dreams open,

Truths revealed unwillfully,

Breathing in another's scent as familiar as

One's own,

Comforted unaware.

How I long to reach across that

Long, uncharted space and

Find you there.
