The mattress feels small without you now.
I shiver for lack of secondary body heat
and keep myself awake with fears
of waking up in the dark to urinate
and not having to be careful
not to stir you.

I've become dependent on your breathing
as a lullaby, and your morning shifting
as an alarm clock.
I will be late for my appointments tomorrow.
Tomorrow, I will invite you to stay with me.

"No, the was no way out and no one can imagine what the evenings in prisons are like"
Camus, from L'étranger

Alone for bed...
I like this, but I like it better after I read your Bio, I thought a woman had written this about her man. But not, a sensitive man in love with his woman. This made me smile, wish yall many
loving years together. Robin...

thanks, Robin
We are four months from the big day, and I think the only one dealing well with the stress is our beagle. I do appreciate the sensitive man comment. Hope to read some of your work in the near future and give you feedback.
