My back against you
Fitting there
Your hand curves to my breast
We breathe together in a bed
Your head against me rests

We try to do this
When we can
It’s going on for years
And then we live our separate lives
But neither seems to care

This is us
This is our way
Routine within routine
We meet, we kiss, we love, then sleep
We pledge ourselves, then leave

I think this has us satisfied
Neither asks for more
We trust in how the other feels
Despite not being sure

When it is we’ll touch again 
Or feel each other sleep
There is no torture or despair
Our feelings sure and deep

And now I lie here waiting for
Your muscles to release
To feel the softest pressure build
As you yield to sleep

These few moments are so sweet 
Our ease together shows
We love each other
And I love
Our angle of repose.
