Tracing across your brow,
wipe the sleep from your eyes,
our own little cocoon of joy;
let’s be still for one more day.
Let’s stay here, in the sunlight
and ignore the crunch outside,
it’s not autumn leaves like you promised.
It’s the sound of Mondays, or rainy days
and bills way past due.
Let’s one-stop-shop our groceries online
and have pizza delivered to the duvet.
Forget about the cold outdoors with me.
Let’s forget about the missing stars.
Let’s cuddle up, just us. No fuss.
Let’s stay away, sleeping, for one more day.
