Memory in Blankets

I watched you sleep
last night in the cool
the moon
shimmering through
your blinds

you looked so
peaceful

the rise and fall
of your breath a gentle
whisper in the night

I wish I could
capture that moment
in the depths of my memory
keep it forever
wrapped in the warmth
of those blankets
that cover you

time keeps on
and I keep my
watch over you
in time knowing
this moment will
be only that –

a memory
wrapped
in blankets…
