you sleep a peaceful peaceful sleep
with eyes of deepest blue shut tightly against the light
your soft red lips closed around your thumb sucking.
you turn from back to side and then the other way
you sometimes move so much you entirely change your place
and we find you at the foot of your bed instead of at the head
your legs relaxed and splayed completely effortless
your arm is over your eyes or straight out by your side
and you little round belly moves in and out with each restful breath.
I wonder what you dream
you look so peaceful there always
A wonderful peaceful sleep
