In the other room

They’ve gone

To sleep

In the other room-

Snorts and grunts

And tiny snores

Float

Into my ears

As they twist

And turn

In their beds,

With blankets

Trapped

Around their legs.

Once in a while

I sneak in

To check

On them-

Just to

See them

At rest.

The daughters

And the wife,

All unaware

Of my watching

From the edge

Of their

Sleep.

Each rise

And fall

Of their tiny chests

Fills me with the hope of a new day and life filled with their voices and periodic pauses to say “I love you”, as they race away again.
