simple things

there are plenty of things
that i would love to know
but forgive me
if i tend to wonder
the simplest things

i would like to know
your last thought
before you fall asleep
at night
and as you grab your pillow
pulling it to your side
do you ever
pretend
that you are burying your face
in my hair
and when you wake up
is your body responding
to a dream of me

so you may contemplate
the meaning of
it all
but i would be happy
just knowing
the meaning behind
that look in your eyes
and the smile on your lips
