I’ve known many a man
And thought I loved a few.
But I have loved none
The way I have you.
I have been naked before
My body bare and cold,
Some tried to keep me warm,
And I shivered as the night grew old.
But your body keeps me warm,
And your touch makes every part of me dance;
First, with a nervous sprint in every step,
And then, a nonchalant trance.
I’ve always known a little song,
But had no one to sing it to,
Now I find myself humming it out loud,
Even as I try not to wake you.
The steam from my morning coffee
Seems to be breathing its last.
But I let it cool as I hear you breathe,
Slowly letting go of my past.
