There isn’t a place I need to be
just someone I’d like to know
like in a dream
the one who gets me.

Up every morning to coffee
nutty with a touch of sweetness
not bitter or imperious
just an understanding ear.

And when the night falls
on earth like a shadow
instead of the void it is
we roll our uncertainties

Into a something beautiful
for what time there is left.
