FALLING ASLEEP

BabyHis dimpled hands held my hands

as he fell asleep

his droopy eyes fixed upon mine

rooting me where I stood

servant to his  dreams

enthralled

an angel in my arms

his little chest  rising and falling

in a rhythm under my touch

and he smiled

a half asleep smile

of contentment and love

my reward.
