over coffee

“I could make you dinner” —
a light turned on behind your eyes,
and then, almost immediately, you seem
to change your mind.

Too much too soon, maybe,
after nearly 24 hours
spent in each others
company.

But it’s a sweet thought,
gesture,
idea. And heartening
you even thought of it at all.

We are both human
and none of this is perfect –
I was nervous and so were you.

I hope there is more to come
