goodnight sweetheart, goodnight

he’s breathing so softly
so deeply
so gently
or is that me?

the space between us has dissolved
and i cant tell
if he’s taking my air
or if i’m taking his

we rest next to each other
and sigh into the night,
each comforting the other
knowingly and unknowingly

it is like that with your children

even the ones
who do not breath at all
