A Smile Lines Your Face

At night - trapped
space - I lay beside
you, and turn to
lift my head
to watch you as you

Black hair - thinner now,
your beard rough, and
your eyes closed.

Peacefulness surrounds
me as your eyes flutter;
probably dreaming.
A smile lines your face.

My eyes close -
I know I am safe.
