The Right Side of the Bed

I sleep on the right side of the bed.
Most mornings I wake up with my arm outstretched to your side like I used to when you would wake up earlier than me and I'd check to see if you were really gone. The heat on the sheets gave me an idea of it was 5 or 6 or 7.

Sometimes I try to sleep in the middle of the bed , taking up as much space as possible. I think it will make me sleep better. It doesn't. 

So, I sleep on the right side of the bed.
Someday I won't have to.
Tonight I do, I reach for you, and the sheets are cool.
