I remember the way you looked at me when I woke up from my sleep, with my head resting on your shoulder. I could feel some ruffles around me, little did I know you were trying to take pictures of me asleep.
My hair was a mess and my eyes were tiny. You asked if I wanted some snacks… I smiled and dozed off again while you held my hand and patted my forehead. I know I could sleep warm as you tucked me in the blanket very often and played with the curtains so that the light didn’t hit my eyes. I know you didn’t sleep that night; although you were very tired too. Just to watch over me.
When I woke up all worried at midnight, you accompanied me; holding my hand. When I had the look of anxiety in my eyes, you gave me that reassuring smile to let me know that it will all be alright….
When I woke up the next morning, I felt refreshed – like the leaves sparkling with the dew drops.
