Nighttime Breath

How it swells beneath my chest

Down around my back and

Up to my breast

Breaking into nostrils dry

Trying now to hold not cry

Comes in cool yet leaves me warm

In purest fashion it’s rhythm flows

In and out, rising lungs and body full

Have you listened, intent it’s sound?

Deeply urges a peaceful soul

Oh be still my friend!

Free from the world, now rest your body

Nestled in bed

Deplete your mind of daily worries

Breathing deep and gently pause

Into your blissful dreams of love

Lovely person so sweet and fair

Just rest tonight without a care
