Tiny Little Sleepers

Her tiny

Dark

Eyes,

And perfect

Tiny

Lips-

Curled

Into a smile

Or

Puckered

Into a kiss,

“Fishy lips”,

For Daddy-

Just like

Her

Older sister.

Hot

And sweaty-

“She runs hot like her Daddy”-

Pulling

The blankets

Off

With every turn

Of her tiny

Body,

Just to shiver

In the cool

Night breeze

Coming through

The open window,

Beneath

The ceiling fan,

In a late summer

Heat wave.

Muttering,

Grinding teeth,

Shuffling legs,

Flailing arms-

Also like her Daddy-

In an active sleep,

Of sorts.

“Grunty little pig”,

Chasing

Dreams,

And invisible

Friends-

Up and down

Slides,

And steps

Up to excitement,

Unseen

Within her

Dreams.

 

Thank God,

For tiny

Little sleepers.

Lingering

Dark hair,

Dark eyes,

Smooth skin,

Soft lips,

Delicate touch,

Gentle scent-

Lingering,

In

My thoughts

For hours,

And days,

And weeks,

And months,

Forever.
