After a long day when retired
To the warmth of the bed
You create your own little universe
With tons of tug of war, teasing and us
But as time ticks on
We just drifts off into silence
Before sleep surrenders us
Our breaths syn
Our thoughts leave us for the night
And with each one on either side
We feel at peace
With the purity of silence between us.
And for me …
More than anything this is what
I’ll miss one day when
We’ll have to walk our different paths.
