Watching a show that we know by heart,
Snuggled up in comfy clothes,
Stealing away a few moments just for us.
The house is quiet, no visitors or house guests.
Just the furballs running around.
No work or chores to distract; they can wait.
I block your view and smile innocently,
Then I step up on the couch, straddle your lap and sit.
Nothing sexual, just to be close.
I kiss your cheek as you wrap your arms around me,
Embracing me in a hug.
I rest my head aside yours,
My arms draped over your shoulders,
And there we sit, enjoying the moment.
This is my favorite way to connect.
What is yours?
