There’s a space in my bed for you to lie.

Darling, come rest with me-

I’ve slept on your side of the bed for far 

too 

long

 

There’s a pillow by my side

where you’re supposed to lie.

I reach out for you sometimes,

But I find wrinkled sheets left at your wake. 

 

Darling, come rest with me-

Place your hands by my side and hold me as if dawn is upon us,

Sink into my warmth and let it seep through your bones;

Let my hands find yours in the dark and hold you,

Rock you to and fro, like a boat drifting mindlessly in your sea of doubt 

Draw me a map to your heart and bury me there as treasure. 

 

Darling, come rest with me-

Take my troubles, give me sleep,

Give me solace in your arms 

And peace in your sighs

Let us rest for now-

As two lovers, 

side by side, 

Eyes closed 

In 

Sleep
