you fell asleep on my chest
and I became conscious
of every breath
watching my chest rise and fall
and feeling so loved
that you trusted me 
with such an innocent task
of being your resting place
your home for slumber
and I will slow my heart’s rhythm
so you can focus on your dreams
and if a nightmare creeps 
into your mind 
just open your eyes
and feel my heart beating 
close to yours
