As You Sleep…

I gaze down at your gentle face
It knows only peace as the moon sneaks through the window
Your eyelashes flutter like wings of butterflies
Seeming to sparkle in the illumination,
Making way for magic to fill your dreams
Your lips slightly pursed, your cheeks plump
I watch as your chest slowly rises and falls
The soft sound of your breath escapes.
But I don’t hear it

…because I’m holding our baby in my arms for the 3rd hour straight
Rocking backwards and forwards as my sanity takes a hike
I fight the urge to launch a pacifier at your slumbering head
As my soothing becomes louder that the baby’s cries in an attempt to wake you
‘Sleep like a baby’, they say
I want to sleep like a husband
