Late at night you lay beside me
vibrating like the love and kindness within you
is simply too much to contain.
Whatever room I am in
you are not far away
sleeping under desk or on window sill.
You sweeten the energy of whatever room
that you grace with your vibrancy
like a spoon of sugar in a cup of tea.
I want to explain how much I love you
to unravel the multitudes of your perfection
so that you understand
but you won’t understand
and that is okay,
so I settle…
for scratching behind your ears.
