I love the way he breaths when he sleeps.
The grunt he makes when I know he's turning on his side
listening to him sleeping is the most beautiful slence i've ever heard.
I want to drop tears of beauty for his silence,and tears of sadness knowing i'll never hear his sleeping breaths right beside me.
His silent breaths make me cry,for the love that I will never see,and his heavy almost snoring breaths make me laugh,for no one sounds perfect throughout there sleep

This is Probably the first good poem Ive ever written,Igot inspired at 4am and it's because My best friend fell asleep on the phone with me for the first time,the poem just cam in my head,I had to write it down.
Hope some people enjoy it
