The sounds of Sleep

He is sleeping

with him he is carrying

the sounds of Sleep.


There is a song to his

sonorous sonnet of snoring.

It is calming to listen to it.


He is sleeping

deep and wide,

I imagine he is dreaming

but he rarely shares these to me.


Like most my dreamer usually

does not recall his dreams.

I like to hear his snoring

years ago it once bothered me.


But now I find it precious,

that the man I love so much

is peacefully getting his

much needed rest.


It is relaxing to hear,

his breathing reminds me

of oceans breaking upon the shore.

It is a soothing sound, calming and gentle.


The sounds of him sleeping

remind me how lucky I am

to have this man I love

with me still here.
