How she knows he still loves her

Sunrise walks across sleeping
Children in their 20s still drunk
On love and from the night before
As he lays quietly feeling her
Breathing steady back to him
Snuggled she sleeps finally
But only when he is there.

In daylight she chases dreams
He always said he wanted
But he runs from her now
Says he loves her
More than she will ever know

As he rushes into the arms of another.

Notorious for falling fast landing hard
He is breaking all of their dreams
But she loves him enough for both of them

As she feels what he forgot to feel

She prays he will know to remember
Their connection across a crowded room
Eyes touch and in those first moments
they see Sunday mornings
of coffee and cuddling
Forever after with her feet in his lap.
