When you breathe

I watch you sleep sometimes. Did you know?
The steady rise & fall of your chest calms me in the way that only you seem able to do these days. You ground me.
Even in your sleep you're a touchpoint for my sanity. A safe little harbour away from the currents that seem to drag me out to sea most days. I smile more with you. Laugh more. Breathe easier. You lift the pressure of the day just by walking in the door.
Just by being there. Just by breathing. Next to me.
