A lovely morning
I was sleeping tight, when i felt a slight push against me, and the little figure was lying just at the edge of the bed- about to fall down.
i moved to the inner side of the bed, and hold him.
"what's worng Adham?"
"momy, i can't sleep"
"but you were already asleep long time ago, sweetheart"
"now i can't. can i sleep here?"
i held him tight, hoping he would get back to sleep.
in few seconds he fell asleep, resting his head on my shoulder and his little arm across my stomach.
i couldn't help it: i gave him a long kiss on his forehead. it feels so warm to hold him so close. it's been long time since he slept in my arms.
i was careful not to make big moves or noise, for not to wake Kareem up. he has a long day at office tomorrow. all his days are long at office.
so i moved very slowly towards the bed center, just to give our son some space to sleep. otherwise if he turns arround he would just fall from the bed.
A warm, tender arm pulled me to the inner side of the bed. Kareems arm pulled us together towards him. he woke up, afterall.
"sorry, love" i whispered.
he didn't reply. just pulled us closer, put his arm across me and reaching to Adham- pulling both of us into a big, tight hug.
it feels so good. warm, tender and secure. God, how much i love him :)
in seconds i was asleep myself.
I woke up as Kareem was about to stand up.
"Lovely morning sweetheart" he kissed my forehead and stood up.
This IS a lovely morning.
what could i possibly want more than his love as a morning gift?
