Forever

Poetry

Forever.
Cold silk sheets
And a few tears
In the night
A quiet figure
Beneath the covers
Sleeping soundlessly
Dreaming of singing birds
Or something else
A noise at the window
The figure awakens
She listens attentively
And hears an animal
Scurrying outside
In the darkness
And back to sleep
The pervasive silence
Lingers over her head
And this night will last
Forever

1989 December 28
