At Night

Tue, 03/22/2016 - 02:58 -- mselzer

At night I feel you hold me,
Whispering all the things you never told me.
When I wake up you'll be gone
But for now, I dream on.

I see the stars and know you see them too
I wonder if you think of me as I think of you
But as the moon begins to disappear
I no longer feel you near

As I cling to the covers, I hope to rest
Pretending I can feel the rise and fall of your chest
I feel your gentle hands caressing my skin
Hoping to stay forever, I want to give in

At night, you're always there
Breathing into my tangled hair
But when I breathe in the morning air
I sigh with the knowledge you're no longer there.
