I Want To Watch You Wake
I want to watch you wake -
watch you return to self;
As reason replaces abandon,
Awareness flirts with self-consciousness
I want to see you wake, enthused about the day ahead -
the children, your work, your play, our time together, our time apart
(but not disconnected!) , our love....
I want to wipe the mist from the mirror, and see you there,
Leaving kisses in your wake.
