When You Watched Me Sleep – A Love Poem

i have been in hospital and skilled nursing facility since 2/7.  i’m going home with 24 hour care tuesday.  tripped on a small block while watching the church kids.  broke right tibia, knee, wrist.  some surgery already.  more to follow in a few months.  so it will be a long slow recovery.  more sometime next week…maybe even a fiction challenge.  meanwhile, a short poem:

When You Watched Me Sleep – A Love Poem

I asked you to go home
to rest
to dream
of other days
and smiles,
but you said
you wanted to watch me sleep.
So
we let ourselves
be sentimental
just for a moment or two.
