Comfortable Silence

Silence enwraps us as we sit together.
Side-by-side but nothing said.
Our breathing in sync.
Inhale. Exhale. Together.

At first these silent moments together are uncomfortable
Nervousness rushes to the surface as I try to think of something to say.
I just want to break the silence so bad.
But I don’t want you to think of me as awkward.

But now the moments of silence are comforting.
It’s like a large blanket over us as we snuggle together.
Just knowing you’re here for me and I’m here is enough.
We don’t even need the words.
