Audrey Sleeping

Audrey sleeping,
wrapped tight in sheets
white and soft.

Her hair, tussled
into black coils
on the pillow.

She breathes slowly,
her small chest
rising and falling.

I could watch
her sleeping there
until time ends.

Soon she’ll wake
and a new day
will have began.

A day
when she’ll
leave me.
