As you sleep

I watch you.
As you sleep.
You breathe in.
Then you exhale.
Yet, still I watch.

You look, so peaceful.
I think.
I do not wish to disturb.
That restful state you find yourself.

I observe you breathe.
Up and down, in and out.
Watching and listening.
The rhythm is serene.
There is comfort here.

This knowledge pleases me.
Knowing we are together.
In this quiet space.
Just you and me.
