You Are There! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Head back
(reclining)

I fall asleep
waiting for you

in a shaft of sunlight

I
(supine)

in its spotlight

a rather larger than life
dust mote amongst dust motes

as if in a dream
I awake

to find my face
covered by your hair

your eyes
two little fishes

swimming into view

your mouth
a scarlet kiss

about to happen

taking my breath
away

with just the fact
that you are there!
