I work at night
She works by day
The bed lays heart broken
We brush by once
And share a kiss
I Love Yous quickly spoken

The bed is like a locket
She has but half the heart
The one that I am missing
When we must be apart

When I lay for sleep through the day
Yes, I have more room to sprawl
My legs still hang from the sides
And my head bangs off the wall

So often while fitful napping
The phone rings so I awake
I answer as if Im at work
And her giggles I cannot take

I let go of the pillow
Drink in the sound of her voice
Shes found time to talk to me
I tell her how I rejoice

And when she says that she must go
I exhale with such a force
I say goodbye breathlessly
So the butterflies run their course

Fitful sleeping begets dreaming
I dream soon a time that when
The moon will shine on both of us
One soul will share this bed again

Ah Walt, this is adorable and sad and
funny --)   But, it does keep you
appreciating each other "absense does
make the heart grow fonder"

Beautiful thoughts!  I love your mix of humour in amongst your longing ... had me sighing and laughing in the same breath ... nicely penned Walt!

Best wishes,
/Kit
