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.
