Its that gentle thud that helps me drift off to sleep.
Like an ocean crashing on rocky shores,
Like the quiet chirping of the birds as the night settles over the land.
Your heart beat is the time counter that keeps my breath in check.
The gentle thudding under my ear, the waves from the ocean and the sweet crisp bird song is everything washes over me as I can find myself slipping into the silence of everything but that time keeper in your chest.
