I hate sleeping alone.  I don't want to sleep with just anyone next to me though.  What I long for is my soulmate.  I long to lay in the dark, talking softly to him about all things, big and small, until one of us whispers "I'm falling asleep." 

I long to have someone reach for me in the middle of the night, and pull me closer just to feel my warmth, my touch.  I long to be able to reach out and touch him in the middle of the night.  Whether it is out of a need for comfort, a need for closeness, or a simple desire. 

I long to wake up before the alarm, and watch this incredible man who has chosen to share his life with me sleep.  To see the shadows fall across his face, to watch a smile come and go as he dreams, to hear the easy rhythm of his breathing.

I long to wake up and find him watching me, with desire, 

I hate sleeping alone.  I hate sleeping with the wrong person.  I think my need is pretty simple, so why is it so hard to find?

I never slept alone until I got married. I just miss sleeping next to someone just to feel safe and to share our thoughts and dreams.
It's probably too late though, I'm 46.

Beautifully expressed. I couldn't have said it better myself. I agree with you 100%

Elequent and beautiful.<br />
Your statement makes me wish to fullfill your dreams, comfort your desires and inhale your breath while sharing your warmth of compassionate touch. Self fulfilling my own personal longings that you have placed here in print.<br />
Thank you for sharing your heart felt words and thoughts!<br />
I hope that your desires lead you to the love and passion you seek and deserve.

Yes this does tend to be lonely sleeping alone..

I agree with everything you said if you replace the word him with her...
