A couple asleep in bed

She resting her head
On his shoulder
Him caressing her asleep

Suddenly
The baby makes a noise
Starts crying
She wakes up
But he starts to get up
Telling her
“Go back to sleep. I’ll get her.”

She rests her eyes
Exhausted
But at peace
She falls back to sleep

Few things I aspire
To achieve
As an accomplishment
And a testament
To who I am

Being a loving father
And partner
Is one of them

I want to be that man
More than anything in life
Everything I do
Is for that to one day
Be true
