I WOKE

I woke
and crept
like a cat

on silent feet
about my own house~
to look

at you
while you were sleeping,
your hair

sprayed on the pillow,
your eyes
closed,

your body
safe and solitary,
and my doors

shut for your safety
and your comfort.
I did this

thinking I was intruding,
yet wanting to see
the most beautiful thing

that has ever been in my house.
