Your little snores displace the silence of our room

I slip into bed, not silently enough

You stir

Making your way, eyes closed, to mama

Perpendicularly you lay between us

Kicking my face as you nurse

I realize that one day these will be the moments I long for

I take it in

Kiss the soft bottoms of your feet

Smelling that unique smell of your skin

I track your back as it goes up and down

In concert with your soft breaths

For a moment time stands still

Just as sleep comes
