I lay my head down
In preparation for sleep
But I know it won’t be
A sleep so deep
That I won’t have a dream
Of you and me
And I’ll awake soon later
With cold hands and feet
Because without you
I’m just not as warm
I’m just not the same
Inside and out
The white lines blur as we drive along
And the smell of sun-baked upholstery
Soaks my nostrils, like water soaks a sponge,
With the comfort of home, and having a family.
I’m dazed from a day’s long labor,
My eyes heavy, and my head grows lazy.
You wrap your arm around me
With love and brazen consideration
Pulling me close against your scent;
The smell of comfort, and having a family.
I am whisked away into a world long lost,
Whisked away into a world without cost.
