things i want to remember forever #1

in our dark bedroom, quiet but for the whoosh of the fan, helping you fall asleep. you breastfed softly and then rolled away. i watched for a moment as you stirred, not quite sleeping. i curled up around you, my stomach to your back, just like we were when you were still in me. i nuzzled my face into the back of your head, and felt the warmth radiating towards me. your hair was sweaty, it smelled like sunshine and the earth. we laid together, breathing together, until you were sleeping and i was left lying in the dark, overwhelmed with love.
