To know that face

To love, what to say?

To make love and play chess in bed,
to dream, to have kids beginning the day,
jumping around as thus changing the pace;
to elevate those moments from wonder, to a constant bliss.

To know friendship at last
to make each other breakfast,
to be given the last of the juice
because she loves you.

To watch you freeze outside
while it's pouring, for a cigarette

To start the washing machine

and know serenity.

To read books in quietude,
to share a kiss and suddenly: stand still

before we devour one another.


To make the bed,
and celebrate it
with a simple nod.


To let you sit in silence,
to find your hand on my lap,
to see your eyes fixed on mine;
and to know what you are thinking


To sing you a song

and hear it being sung back at me.

Your colours are gray
but can suddenly change to blue

to make the day just radiate.
