Asleep

The kids are

Asleep

With grunts

And jerks

And twisted blankets

Wrapped in knots

Around their legs,

And the sounds

Of grinding teeth

And incoherent ramblings of playground conversations replayed in dreams.

As they sleep,

I stare

At the ten fingers

And ten toes

That God was

Kind enough

To give them both,

Along with

Two eyes

And strong lungs and hearts.

Each little

Noise

That they make

Is a validation

Of their fresh new lives so full of promise and potential and joy.

I can not

Take

Any credit

For their amazing

Perfection,

But I am

Thankful

To have been blessed

As their father

And blessed

With the dumb luck

To be the one to enjoy each and every moment I have with them in this world.
