At this very moment

if it were possible

I would wrap around you

like you're the last bit of warmth

left on Earth

collapse every inch of myself

against your skin


At this very moment

I would bury my face in your neck

and breathe in the heat

and feel your light

hit my closed eyelids

if only I could


When you return

my dear

could you love

would you love

my frantically clinging arms?

and warm my numb fingers,

so long absent

from your touch?


Would you pretend

you heard me sing

my song?

Would you think

you heard me say

stay, stay, stay?


Forgive me

that is not the case

I never meant to make you stay

my desperate arms will know

that I would simply follow

I just wish you could

take me with you

when you go


Just a 19 sets and rises, 

and you'll be back

and I'll be kissing you

and the missing you

will subside


So while you're gone


being upset will get

you no closer to home

There is no rush

no reason to push,

I'll be right here

with open arms

waiting to warm

the coldness you've become


And my God

when you smile,

I will gladly fall apart

at your feet

and let you know

you are worth the wait
