I wanted you to know that I was awake as you slept.
I felt you move closer and hold me,
felt you unconsciously kiss my nose,
lost somewhere deep within a dream.
We are not lovers and we never have been.
And, likely, never will be.
But I was awake while you were sleeping.
And I wanted to tell you
that I liked lying awake
next to you.
Another older one I thought I’d bring to live here.
