today, for an hour

You rest your head in my lap.
You still, and the long sighs you take
are so achingly precious.
You will not remember, my love,
so I’ll remember for us both:
how, in that moment, I stopped the world from spinning–
how I stopped the world and all its noise
from entering your sweet slumber.
