waking nights

sluggish with fatigue

time blurred

still

worked towards better things

two pages here

an email there

walked in the sun

spoke with friends

glad of their advice

(already walking that path

But their counsel matters)

on the waking nights

nitrile gloves

and stories

i can’t share

about my purpose

but my thoughts

send word to you

and fighting sleep

the promise of you

haunts me

awake to celebrate

and sit with it

as another five a.m

passes and I’m there

Bearing witness

About the business

listening to the silence

for a sign
