Learning to Sleep

I feel like I’m learning how to sleep again
Like it’s something my body forgot
Without you next to me
I can’t relax
Can’t let down my guard

This feeling, this need
Buried in me like a seed
Dormant, it sleeps
Even when I cannot

So I wait patiently
For you to water my soul
With your own need
With your love

Knowing that only then
Will we both remember
How to sleep
