Sleeping With


Lie there, and trust me, as you turn your back
And fall asleep as swiftly as a mouse
Eyed by a rattlesnake.

Lie there, and trust me as I watch your back
For predators and spiders in the house,
Spying at midnight.

Yet in the darkness you rise up and face the dark
While I oblivious lie like the dead,
Dreaming of flying.

Lie there, you think, and trust me as I trusted you,
And wake to praise the Dawn each day alive,
Sweet landing.



To G,
