Sweet Sleep, A Poem

by Lila on August 19, 2015

Sweet-SleepForehead pressed to cheek

Tiny nails pinch my neck

I sing of summer.

 

Feet dig, body rolls

Warm breath settles slowly

We stand, sway, rock,

 

Eyelids flutter shut

A button starts the sound of

heartbeats in the night

 

I squeeze and kiss you

Lower you carefully down

You sleep as I slip away

Glancing back

 

(The story of going to sleep for Grayson at 19 months.)
