How familiar you feel to me,

sleeping next to you like curling up with my favourite book,

your smell, the pages as I flip through,

your eyes, the words piercing my soul,

your body, the rhythmic pentameter that rocks me to sleep,

safe, happy, your ending ever changing in meaning,

your beginning inspiring me,

giving me courage I’d forgotten long ago...

I stroke your spine and marvel at your perfect prose.
