Sleepy Smiles

“In his arms, I was safe.
I couldn’t help but smile
as sleep took me away.”

A small smile crept across his lips and he motioned me to move toward him. I snuggled against his side and his arms wrapped around me, which only made me melt further into him. With my ear just above his heart, I heard that beating within his chest like it was a melody I’d heard since infancy. It was comforting. Safe. I felt the warmth of his breath hitting the top of my head just before a low whisper passed his lips, “This is home.” I couldn’t help but smile as sleep took me away.
