A Midnight Snack
I woke through the night and you were not there,
reaching over your pillow I inhale the sweet smell of your hair.
Frantically tracing your side of the bed for you,
for a split second I wonder if there was no you, what I'd do?
Sitting up in our bed, worrying where abouts you are?
contemplating getting dressed and seeking near and far.
I call out your name, but our four walls do not reply,
if I don't find you soon, I feel like I could cry.
It's almost been five minutes now and you are nowhere to be seen,
silently, I say a prayer someone'll watch over my queen.
Clutching our quilt, I hear the closing of a door,
listening for your foot falls, I place my ear to the floor.
Still no sign of you and I fill with fear,
what logical reason there could be for you not being here?
I'm alone in the darkness, holding out my arms to our four walls,
sssssh, is what I can hear your foot falls?
Can you hear me silently calling your name?
I've had enough of hide n seek, let's not play this game?
I really need to hold you close to me,
take you back to our bed as we lay in ecstasy.
A sigh of relief escapes me as you walk through our bedroom door,
I pull you tantalisingly close and whisper, "where'd you go?"
"Please don't leave me again", I ask you in a state,
to which you reply, "I only went for A MIDNIGHT SNACK here baby grab a plate?"
