I am watching her
from across the room, her breath regular and strong,
shoulders rising and falling in time.
I am imagining that
she is dreaming, her busy heart
telling her a story.
I am writing some notes
to myself, so I can remember
how her hair falls across her face-
A silken veil.
She watches me,
pretending to be asleep.
Waiting until I am the one dreaming,
so she can read these words.
