Sleep

You never really know

How much someone means to you

Until you watch them fall asleep.

Their breathing slows,

Your heartbeat slowly, but surely,

Matches theirs. 

Those little moments that they

Inhale deeply

Make you fear that they may wake.

Though, you assure yourself

That they’ll sleep soundly…

And they do.

They wake to see you sleeping

With a smile, and they smile back.
