“A Couch that Speaks”

breathing
peace
sounds from the couch
what’s God doing to my heart

breathing
asleep
restful break from the park
a home to feel comfortable in

breathing
snoring
in clean clothes with a shave
another night spent in warmth

breathing
serenity
being accepted as-is
being loved and spoiled with food

breathing
resting
once a boy, now old man
a son and a father to others

breathing
coughing
life’s taken its toll
health that seems to be weak

breathing
waking
to realize time’s passed
the park awaits his presence

breathing
peace
sounds from the couch
what’s God doing to my heart
