Sweet sleep

Oh how sweet it really feels

To share a family bed again

With footsie games 

And story time

We’re not just family

We’re friends

We share values and mutual respect

We share love and sheets and farts

We share warmth and snores and laughter 

I might not fall fast asleep to grinding teeth, incoherent Dutch words and sprawled out little girl legs

I’ll sleep light enough to make sure they’re safe and protected

I’ll listen to their soft voices snore

We are all safe here in our big family bed
