Watching you in that peaceful state -
Knowing all too soon I'll be leaving you
Hate to go - yet I cannot stay
Here is where I wish to be
With you in this moment
Caught in time
You are my reason for breathing
So how can I leave you
When you're so fragile, so lonely-
As you sleep?
The floor creaks and a breath is held
Mumbling as you stretch...you reach out
And I watch from the door
Sighing as I close it behind me.
