another day

I awake with a start
Heart pounding
I sit up
Wipe the tears away
I'm soaked with sweat

I pull the blankets off
My feet hit the floor
I stand, and sway

I walk to your bed
In the darkness
Looking for
The rise
And fall
Of your chest in the moonlight
With bated breath
Making sure
You're still alive

Hoping that my nightmare
Wasn't real
In the darkness
You snore softly
Relief washes over me
I sit on your bed side
Watching over you
Waiting for the dawn
To bring us into
Another day
