Arm as a pillow
I gaze at your sleeping form
Blessedly peaceful
My midnight vigil begins
While you doze like an infant

Notes: link Hand reaching to arm as a pillow.

Arm as a pillow is a makurakatoba, indicating sleeping with someone, often after intercourse.

The "feeling" is actually more comic in effect than early classical Japanese poetry, but believe me, it was truly felt.
