Tease gentle strands of your hair until the whole of it is a crowning blaze of tangled glory.
Lie on each other's arms until they go to sleep, and only protest until they are awake again.
Gently tickle ears and necks until everyone is laughing together.
Argue over whose turn it is to choose the music.
Detach sats monitors and feed pumps to set off alarms and make each other laugh.
Maybe we let our words get in the way.
