She’s asleep beside me,
The dog is snoring on his worn out, faded yellow cushion next to the bed and I can’t get to sleep.
She looks much better than I do when I sleep, or when I’m awake
There’s a summers breeze outside but it’s late and Ireland so it chills too
How did I get here?
There’s something freeing about being awake when everyone’s asleep, finally time to think
But, how did I get here?
Lying in bed next to a truly beautiful woman, surrounded by peace. Things really have changed.
I’m glad I’m here…
