Sound of a Breath

Sound of a Breath

As I lay here, I stare at you. I watch you sleep, I listen to your every
breath. It is music to my ears. The simplicity of knowing you are right here
lying next to me. Only an arms length away. If only this moment of certainty
could last forever.

Most people take it for granted that they get to lay next to the one they love
most every night. Their every breath becomes irritating. They don't realize how
comforting a simple breath of air can be.

But when you realize that simple sound of breathing can be taken away at any
moment, only to leave you with complete silence. How quickly you begin to enjoy
it.
