I don’t want to

How much do you listen to

Your little murmurs

As you finally fall

In REM

I don’t want to

But I do

I listen as you exhausted limbs

Finally relax

And give in

To the temptation

Of rest

And you go under

I listen as your

Overworked brain

Slows down

As an unwound clock

And your pace tempers

To an almost full stop

I even watch your chest

Rising as waves

Of the Caribbean Blue

And crashing as same

I must

Though I don’t want to

I don’t want to

But I must

Because my love

You are all I have

And my heart

Holds on to yours

I don’t want to

Yet I will

Since the forces

Are too great

I am unable to resist

Its influence

I will watch

As you sleep

After a long grueling day

Of preparing

The foundation

For our future

I don’t want to

But I do

Because I am grateful

For you

For your sacrifices

For your love
