loving you or just loving myself just enough
to let you love me being together,
feeling that connection –
The adoration I might show you in the
morning may by evening take on a
Late in the day
I am more or less worn out
hiding in corners before sleep
But maybe midday heat returning will chase
away the strangeness that keeps us apart and
also keeps us together.
Finally I yawn. I say that’s good let sleep come.
Let you come or go,
I’ll be here when I wake up.
