Two Children

my son and my daughter
sweet innocence
in peaceful dreams

I want to capture these moments with my camera, but I don't dare wake them with the flash. My daughter has fallen asleep, once again, on the books she has read before bed. My son, curled lovingly around his precious moose. I want these moments to be etched in my mind forever, never to forget the sound of their even breathing while they dream.

I wonder what they dream about.

I think I will always treasure that moment, before heading to bed myself, of checking in on each of them. They will be teenagers and I will still do it, I am sure.

At the end of each day, I take this gift with me to sleep.
