You and I

I stir

I hear

I feel the gentle purr

Of your breathing

In the half light of another dawn

That time between night and day

Your sleepy smile

Awakens my desire

To stay

To remain

With you longer

Before rising for another day

The smile

That makes my heart rejoice

That we are still in that place together

After so many years

That we remain

You and I
