While my heaven was the distance between his fingers as my own Cats Christmas tree shirt, the distance between his ribcage as my bones nuzzled softly against his, as my sleepy body mumbled: this is it, this is that notion of safety and serenity that I’ve read about so many times, and written about even more. What a hymn you are, boy, I wanted to say, prayer personified. I address it all to your bones, as they cradle and protect mine, from the cold air, and my own thoughts, both sending shivers down my spine.

Best Cats Christmas tree shirt
It felt surreal to picture our bodies covered by that Cats Christmas tree shirt, underneath the starry night sky, surrounded by numerous trees, and the wink of the moonlight glistening across the river. And then I was startled by his sleepy lips planting a dreamy kiss on my forehead, half conscious but still aware that I was there, that I was in his arms, writing a poem in my head and murmuring it like a snowflake kiss on his skin, a poem about the moment as it was passing me by, thinking—no matter what happens, no matter how time helps or warps the space between us, I would remember this moment forever.
