Yesterday no more

With my worn out hands

I hold the delicate flab of your cheek

 

And remember the good old nights

Self-effacing moon in full view.

Often we glanced at the stars and watched

With childlike delight and searched for their names

Stubborn they nestled together shamelessly.

 

Gaining inspiration I used to circle

My shoulders around your waist

And ask for a kiss

 

But this was twelve Decembers ago

Or is it thirteen when we were poor

And hungry and curious

And we had both heard of love?

 

Now when the nights are not ripe anymore

And the day as if lost in the heat of life

It seems odd and I find it difficult to explain why

There are only circles under your eyes
