I never got a chance to tell you
How that expression on your face stayed with me
Even while I lay sleepless in a small bed
With a foreign moon singing me lullabies
It helped me relax though I still could not rest
Eyes closed lips pursed
Hands slow bodies immersed
In an overflowing cup as the sun came up
That came to an abrupt halt upon my return
That morning you were quiet
And I was calm
The grand canyon between us
Filling with sand
No more sleight of hands
Only piercing revelations of what we had become
Before we ever had begun
