Last Night When You Were In Deep Sleep
Last night when you were in deep sleep
I scribbled a poem on your bare back,
a page so soft-with love bites and moles
I used them to cut the t's and dot the i's;
my finger tips' softly turn created ripples
in a placid lake where you prepared
to take a dip in your dream,
my words followed you in that unknown land
secretly to know your destination.
I remembered to forget every scribbled word
as it was my gift to the sleepless night,
she was picking up each word one by one
and kept them in her lap of silence.
For the first time, you never knew
