Eyes so heavy, lids slowly sinking

covering sleepy chocolate brown eyes

quickly fluttering open, fighting to focus

Gradually descending.

Precious sleep.

Eyelashes, black, long and thick

lying on round, pink, warm cheeks.

Peaceful sleep.

Steady, deep, measured breath,

rise and fall, rise and fall

safe, secure

fast asleep.

Arms enfolding a favorite, well-loved toy

holding close, snuggle deep

a sigh, a twitch

dream-filled sleep.

Covered, protected, wrapped, securely warm

comfortable, safe, cozy

restful sleep.
