Awake

I awoke just as the sun rose;
You were still asleep beside.
Your back was to me as you softly breathed;
When I saw you there, I cried.

Dreams that thread through fingers,
Long lost friends that steal away.
You stretched and sleepily turned to me;
I asked you if you’d stay.

You kissed me on the forehead,
And so convincingly smiled.
I took you in my arms and held you;
You giggled like a child.

I awoke just as the sun rose;
You were still asleep beside.
And when you left, I couldn’t sleep,
For remembering how you lied.

    A sad twist to this one. Works well in poetry.
