A Sleepless Night


out of bed.

The sky still dark,

the world standing still.

I hear no distant cars

I see no headlights across the hill

Only magpies

whispering an early welcome for the coming sun.

I could be sleeping

I should be sleeping

but in these small hours of morning,

I'm wide awake because of you.

How torturous,

no presence here in body

only your presence in my mind.

Since your delicate soul touched me

that magical evening,

I've been charmed

I ponder about you night and day.

Relaying sweet memories

wondering in infinite tides

I sit on the lounge with a pot of coffee,

the sky now faintly blue and orange.

My heart grew fond in my sleepless night,

I ask myself

When will I see you next?
