so it’s 11:48pm, you’re fast asleep, but you’re sleep talking. i can hear you breathing softly. you sound so peaceful baby. every night, you sound really really peaceful. i heard you say “baby, i miss you” in your sleepy, mumbling voice, but then you started tossing and turning and whining softly like you wanted to cry in your sleep. but then i started singing to you softly, just like you wanted me to earlier, and you were quiet again, just breathing softly again, sounding as peaceful and content as usual. i never really knew what i was capable of doing to a person, but if i can make someone feel safe when they’re fast asleep without physical touch, then i can do anything.
