Before Going To Sleep. {For Carol}

I love it when we are lying in bed

My arm clings around you

I smell your hair

I kiss your forehead.

Both snuggling in

Under the bed clothes

Everything is left unsaid.

I put my hand

Upon your waist

Caring for you

Both know the touch of grace.

My loving is full

Lying beside you

There are no rules.

There is a lot going on inside our heads

But as we climb into bed

Sinking into the foam mattress

Protected by the duvet

We pull the clothes over whatever we dread.

We pray together to the same God

Both have a faith to keep before we go to sleep.
