Never alone

Never alone

When my eyes are not half open and my mind is unaware,
I can feel you sitting by me running fingers through my hair.
When I’m not quite lost in dreaming. yet I’m not quite wide awake,
All I know is that your presence is the answer to an ache.
When my sighs are shy of yawning but my breathing’s deep and still,
Mere suggestions of your perfume bring my body such a thrill.
You are all I know each evening and you’re in the morning’s light,
When I feel you give the answer then I know it must be right.
In the deepest, darkest silence you’re the voice I always hear.
In a crowd of half a million every word you say is clear.
When I try to write a poem, you are there to guide my hand,
When a mystery unravels you are there to understand,
And I know it’s most peculiar as we’ve never even met –
But if ever you should leave me I may perish with regret.
