Awake in the middle of the night
Sleep has snuck off,
My body fuelled by lethargy,
I can’t even seek it.
I listen to the rhythm of your breathing
1-2, 1-2
It’s a careful pendulum,
1-2, 1-2

(wonder if the birds are waking)
I keep count, and sleep slides in
Underneath the blanket, somewhere
Underneath the pillow
She wraps me up,
Takes me off to paisley-Moroccan-polka dot dreams.

More COSY over here.

I love your quilt!

I have the pillowslip on the right! It sounds fitful and cosy at your place in the dead of night. I can relate to that... just add pillow-turning and blanket tugging to the scenario!
