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.
