54. I Love ... being lulled to sleep by my husband's voice.

I don't sleep well
it takes me hours to fall asleep.

sleep never comes all night.

And so to me those
rare moments
when I can actually
feel myself
between the two worlds;
drifting off
ever so gently
is a gift.

I am usually just
then asleep.
Or not.

My favourite transition
is to hear Brian's voice -
talking, telling me something
that he probably thinks is important
but I think is lulling.

That itself is rare
considering ninety-nine percent of the time
he is fast asleep for hours
before I make my way to bed.
