Waking Up

It was cold this morning.

I wanted to be curled in bed,

Snoring and being boring.

But an awkward thought fell into my head…


Ice-white sheets

Frozen pillows

Outside it sleets,

But inside it shows

Even the weather knows.


It’s because there’s just one thing missing-

Yes, missing- it’s too terrible to be true-

No newspaper headlines or listings:

It’s you.

    Poignant. It took my breath away at the end. Perfectly done.

    I miss you too… although my bed was warm
