I couldn’t sleep

I turned and fluffed the pillow, again.

Of course I was thinking of you.

I wanted to write what I felt

How much I needed you at that moment

Every night the same longing for you

Wishing you were here.



I stretched out my arm to feel

An empty space, cool to the touch

The absence I want you to fill.



Too far, much too far apart

For a midnight rendezvous

We have to imagine, instead

Of being together, holding tight.



I finally slept only to wake and see your morning greeting.

The moment I needed you most you had sent a message.

Connecting minds, not bodies, was the result this night.
