“You want to know what happiness is?
It’s waking up in the middle of the night,
shifting under the blankets
and feeling the heart of the person next to you.
You turn around and see them
in their most peaceful, innocent, and vulnerable state.
They breathe as though the weight of the world lies on anyone’s shoulders but their own.
You smile and kiss their face in the gentlest manner so as not to wake them.
You turn back and an involuntary grin forms on your face.
You feel an arm wrap around your waist and you know
it doesn’t get any better than this.”
