I cuddle back under the sheets on your side of the bed after you leave with the kids to school.
It’s always a lil warmer than my side, and it’s better for my shoulder I say.
Bunch the t-shirt you wore last night around my neck. The soft aroma of your cologne and Dove soap fill my nose, and I’m instantly drowsy.
One long breath and sigh, and I’m drifting away. I pull our comforter, like your arms, tighter around my shoulders.
I nestle my head into your pillow that gently cradles my neck and deters my worries.
I don’t miss you, because you’re not gone; but I need you.
It’s not about time or distance, just a matter of existence.
I love you.
