The dishes were still on the table. I'll get them later. All I can think about now, is being here with you. Snuggled on the couch, watching something on Food Network.
The windows are open and there is a cool breeze coming in from the porch. I look over. The sky is dark and clear.
"Let's go outside and look at the stars" I suggest. Grabbing a blanket from the back of the couch, we go out into the yard. You help me spread out the blanket and we lay down to look at the stars.
We held hands as we talk about the stars and constellations. We talk about the We saw a shooting star pass overhead. I closed my eyes and wished the same wish I always wish. I opened my eyes, turned to see my man and I knew my wish was coming true.
After laying there for a while I notice your breathing change. You start to snore a little. I lean over and kiss your cheek.
I was not really sleepy, so I decided to take a quick swim. I did not want to go inside and it was dark outside, so I took off my clothes and slipped into the water. The water was only a little cool on my skin and it felt good.
I rested my elbows on the edge of the pool where I could watch you sleep. I hear your snoring over the crickets and could not help but smile.
I turned and lazily floated on my back for a while. Then I heard something enter the water. I looked over to where you were laying, all I saw was a pile of clothes. Then I felt your arms surround me.
I gazed into your dark eyes.
I could not help but lean into you and kiss your lips.
