Last Night I Watched You Sleeping

Last night I watched you sleeping
and I realized that
the rising and falling
of your breasts
with every breath
was one more gift;
another pardon,
another chance
to be the man
for whom you
draw each breath.

Thanks Neva and revivor! I had set out with the intention of doing a longer piece, but decided I'd said enough, and left it alone.
