2 a.m.

2 a.m.
You sleep soundly
  your hand upon my chest
making me aware of my own breathing
  I lay wide awake
careful not to disturb you

Another sleepless night
  I bask in your warmth
and feel alive as I lay very still
  thinking of you and how you rescued me
from a the fate of a lonely man

I love you
   always have
even before we met
  I knew your soul
and you touched mine
  
I have been patiently waiting
  in the shadows
between love and time
  the only two things in this world
we don't control

But you found me
   I'm no longer lost
and ready to live

I wish I had the words to tell you this
