The Sound of Breathing

It was on one of those rare moments of peace and quiet in the house, when the baffling cries have been briefly muffled by the lure of deep sleep, that I came to rest beside the tiny life form that only a few weeks ago I had the joy of breathing out of this world. 

I listened to the sound of his steady breathing, in a way that one listens to the singing of the birds on the tree top or the gushing forth of the flowing river when they hit the rocks; sounds of which one cannot come up with meaning but which evokes a warmth of feeling that goes all the way to the heart. 

I could lie there forever, watching him sleep, listening to him breathe.
