Perhaps...

Thu, 08/15/2019 - 01:16 -- A Finch

I awoke beside a stranger.

She must have been my lover

For I hate to sleep alone.

I wish that night lasted forever

 

Or love as well for that matter.

She seemed a dream to me

A mirage, almost eternal.

Yet I know that cannot be.

 

Love does not last forever,

Sometimes only for a night.

But perhaps one night’s enough

To pass till morning light.
