That moment when we’ve been making out and we pull back to take a second…to check in or catch our breaths. The way you look at me and you’re not really smiling, but your eyes are sparkling and I get lost in how many colors blend into each other…I feel you holding my face or scratching up my sides softly. You might laugh at my hair sticking up or just sigh like you’re the most relaxed and happiest person in human existence…That moment wraps me up in a safe bubble and nothing else matters but how warm you are against me and how perfect it feels to be with each other.
Whenever you reach for me in the middle of the night, or when we’re watching a show or movie on the couch, or you’re just walking by…I feel like I’m on top of the world. It’s seemingly so small and simple, but it’s absolutely one of my favorite things.
You’re actually my sunshine. It’s so ridiculously cheesy, but it’s true. Seeing you happy makes me insanely happy. When that smile starts to bloom because of something I’m doing, I feel on top of the world, like I’m conquering a huge mountain. When you’re happy, all feels right in the world…even if it’s just for a moment.
You weren’t feeling well today so I went downstairs to make dinner after I tucked you in. You knew that I had work to finish up, so you adorably asked, “You’re gonna come back up and finish work here right?” I answered yes…
“Yes, I promise,” I responded, smiling as I closed the door gently.
I come back after dinner and brushing my teeth and you’re fast asleep. I crawl into bed as gently as I could, dimming my laptop, and settling in. Your even quiet breathing tells me you’re not bothered by my typing and clicking. 2 hours later, I finish and close my laptop, wrap up the cords, and get myself ready for sleep. You rolled over and tucked your cute little self into my side and now you’re snuggled up with me, my arm trapped inside your safe and warm arm+chest cocoon. I’m not doing this justice exactly how cute this is…maybe because I can’t bear to move my arm to type with both hands. But I love how we make sure we’re touching when we’re asleep. Just a reminder “hey, I’m here. I love you. You’re safe.” And also in this specific moment, you’re cute as hell.
