as she sleeps so do i labor, as i sleep she labors on

i replaced
her pillow case
with the softest
spun silk
her matress
with a cloud

then
sat patiently
on the floor
to guard her dreams
throughout
the long night

if she stirs
i cast a net of adoration
over her
sleeping form
as she rolls over
and faces the wall

as i sleep
i know she does
the same for me
this labor of love
given freely
and shared equally
