I was watching you sleep this morning
I couldn’t resist I had to touch your cheek
I caught your mouth with my thumb
One eye opened you kissed it back,
Smiled and said morning.
You didn’t linger, you took your pills
And then you’re up out of bed
Under the t-shirt you’re struggling to put on
“Tea?” you ask ,I nod
Five minutes later you’re back with mugs
You scramble back into bed
You pass me mine whilst kissing
Me on the cheek
The heats gone from you
So you wrap your arms around my body,
Your feet wrapped in mine, you try to retrieve some heat
We lay there wrapped in each other chatting,
Stupid conversations ,
It’s the same old routine just like it used to be,
Before we both got so stressed and parted for a while.
But all the time I’m thinking how lucky I am to have you
And shout out in my head
thank you, thank you,
she came back home
I look at you, you’re smiling,
looking out towards the window
I wonder if you are thinking the same thing too.
