Close the door
Slowly step
Through the dark
Past the bookcase
To the bed

Retire your socks
Leave your clothes
Behind in a little bundle
By the foot of the bed

Scootch the blanket
& fold it around you
Lying between the edge & me
I can feel your body retire
Your feet & legs sigh
Your arms finding home for the night

I can sense the clouds over your eyes
Pulling you away to dreams
& feel your final shake
Into sleep
