Loved, even when I'm fast asleep.

Every morning before he leaves for work or school, he kisses my forehead. I'm usually asleep, but sometimes I wake up just enough to feel him pressing his lips to my face and I hear him tip-toeing away and shutting the door behind him quietly and carefully.

I love this thing that he does when I'm completely unaware, this very simple act of love, done not to show or prove or demonstrate anything because I'm usually not awake to witness it. He does it just because he loves me.
