you are sleeping
and i listen to you snore.
it is a background to my music,
a comforting rhythm.
constant,
and reminds me that you are there.
this familiarity with you
makes me smile.
i even love your snoring
(even though it sometimes wakes me)
because it is a part of you.
without listening to the snore,
i would not wake to breakfast
or get hugs when i come back from work.
some people ask me,
“how can you stand that?”
and i just smile.
“you get used to it.”
the way you get used to
holding hands,
watching b rated movies,
snuggling
and having stupid talks,
in the middle of the night.
how can snoring matter?
and i find that i have come to feel
the same about his other
short comings and faults.
i cannot cut out those parts
without loosing the wonderful whole.
thanks,
but i will keep the snoring.
