A poem about being in the moment just before falling asleep with someone you love.

after

after
I lie awake
in the stillness
near the border of sleep
listen to your soft breathing
feel your steady
rhythmic
heart beat

after
your body
warm against mine
the shallow and deep shadows
cling to the walls
the floor
the ceiling
as I cling to the moment

after
the here and now
the way it should be
not yesterday
or tomorrow
not if
or when

after
the late winter wind
touching the bedroom window
knowing spring will soon begin
the sun
somewhere
on the other side of the world
from outside
night peeking in

after
I wonder
and wonder
until sleep comes
and the dream begins
