i catch myself

i catch myself  looking at you--like i have never seen you-

you fold your arms and slowly close your eyes---i tip toe out of the room-

your words echo in my heart and mind and i find i am alone with my thoughts-

the window twinkles with the bright afternoon sun---i wave a fly away, but never think of killing it---no i just let it be-

as i do with you, as you do with me---and there is peace in this knowledge--if not a constant--close enough--

i catch myself staring your way and you wake up, telling me you were never asleep---i remember i know you, i remember i love you-

    I can always tell when mine is sleeping. The sound of a freight train is undeniable.
