Falling Asleep

There is nothing like it.
The privilege of watching

As his mind floats away.
His fingers flutter,
Finally releasing the tension that has held them all day. 
He holds himself so stiffly sometimes,
Leaving the house with furrowed brow and focused eyes.
I know he worries,

 

but I do not worry for him.

I know he will succeed.
Because I can see him like this,
relaxed and at peace.
His worries have melted away into the sweet relief of sleep,
And will be far from him till morning. 
Here he is in his purest state, the essence of him shining through the gentle darkness of our room
Confident, gentle, and full of love.


And I get to watch. 
I reach out and touch him and he smiles.
