Do you remember the first night...
In my bed?
Resting in the comfort of at last

No words or motions
Just the rhythmic pattern of our
Not quite synergistic 
But with each inhale and exhale our beating hearts pacing themselves 
after one another 

And when I finally awoke...   
hastening my breath
Eyes blinking 
Legs shifting 
Arms reaching...only you were no longer there
