my favourite time of night
is when everyone else is
softly dreaming in their beds
and all i can hear
is the soft, even breaths
of my ahbruis, lying on the floor.
the house creaks as the wind blows by,
rattling the windows
and occasionally the doors.
everyone is asleep,
and the world stops for
one silent breath...
but only for a little while.
no traffic goes past
and no horns are honking.
there is only silence
at my favourite time of night,
and the steady sound
of my ahbruis's soft, even breaths.
