Stay

Let us stay like this:
You, tucked safely
In the crook of my elbow
And me,
Tucked safely
Underneath the warmth
Of your eyes
As we listen
To the symphony
Of rain.

Let us stay like this:
Laughing beneath the
Sheets
At memories long gone,
At memories waiting for us in patience,
At nothing at all.

Let us stay like this:
Me, singing you songs
With my off-key voice
And you smiling
Because you don’t really care.
And I’ll be reminded
At how much
You really love me.

Let us stay like this:
Together,
Tangled,

Stay…
