The way I feel about you


is hot tea and daffodils


your sleeping body
stretched across a sofa
head nestled against me


a red balloon in summer
a winter bridge and your arm around me
a wedding dance


quiet disagreements
and quick apologies


your hands on my body
your lips on mine
my head against your shoulder


a paper castle
red gold fish
a tree of light


the care you take
and deep blue stars
