little child
sleeping next to me
dreaming dreams
of convalescence and hope
do you know
that I dream of you?
do you know
that I am yours
even though I am a tired soul
lost in the alleyways
of my yesterdays
unable to differentiate
the sunrise
from sunsets

but I know
that you are here
and that is all that is necessary
for me
to feel
that the darkness of the night
is right

You are all I need
and all I ever wanted
because it's always evident
in every word you speak
that you are consumed
by goodness
and I can't help but think
that This man
is not worth what lays beside him
this thing
that has made him more happy
than any other person he has

and the best idea i ever had
was you

so dear lover,
that I will never forget
