watching you sleep

i watch you sleep

look for signs of life

i worry that someday

you won’t wake up

i’d rather you live and i die

for you are worth

a thousand lifetimes more

i check on you from time to time

observe your breathing

see if your chest rise and fall

i panic when it’s not

and i look much closer

i wish i won’t be able to see that day

the day you stop breathing

the day when i won’t be able

to see you and be with you anymore

so for now i watch you sleep
