Night in Room 223

Her lying next to me in this bed. Sound asleep as she breathes heavily. She twitches and it worries me. I wrap my arms around her. Rubbing her sides and telling her that I love her. She squirms for a moment and turns and faces me. Still asleep breathing on my neck. Kicking my leg breathing harder. Gripping my shirt tears rolling down her cheek. I hold her tighter waiting for it to go away. Every kick in sync with the one before. She buries her head into my chest. I rock her back in forth while my shirt soaks up her fearful tears. Much time goes by and she starts to calm. Her heart rate goes to normal. Her breathing goes back to normal. I wipe away her smeared tears from her face. And take off my tear fulfilled shirt in to the floor. I wrap her up once more. I told her I loved her and that I was here still lightly rocking her back in forth. I watch her sleep for a while longer. Thinking of how beautiful she was. Of how I would never want to hurt her. How nothing I would ever do to her would ever be out of hate. And the only thing I could think was. What if she woke up tomorrow and I was gone? Would she know how much I loved her? I drifted away holding her sides right before day break.
