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.
we let ourselves
be sentimental
just for a moment or two.
