Our Bed

Laying here in bed at this time….

I don’t miss your intellect right this minute

I don’t miss your laugh right this minute

I don’t miss your smile right this minute

I don’t miss talking with you right this minute

Right now in this minute I am missing your smooth, broad shoulders

Your heavy thighs and big feet

Your curly hair

The sweet aroma of your body

Your strong arms and hands caressing me

 My heart races thinking about how we came together

And how we fell asleep in each other’s arms in this same bed

And right now in this minute all I have is the pillow where you used to lay your head

My hubby and I, before we got married, we nevrr spent a night together the 10 years of courtship before we became man and wife. When we got married 5 years ago, for we were young, we took a few years getting used to sharing the same bed together. By the time we were comfortable sleeping together side by side, cancer took him away. Not fair! I miss massaging his back and sniffed his distinct aroma... God was cruel taking my loving husbamd away! I miss him.

to me, one of the great things about marriage was having someone to sleep with, not in the sexual sense, just sharing a bed. So cozy and companionable. I miss that so much.
