I Think I Spend Too Much Time Alone


You’ve been out again,
Sneaking in the back door,
Hanging your day on
The back of the chair.
I smell it on you—
The stardust and moonshine
You dragged yourself through
On your way back to me.
Why don’t you take me
With you on your rambles
Through the galaxies?
Slip me into a pocket,
Wear me around your neck,
Fashion me into a jewel
And mount me on a ring,
Take me any way you can!
I’m lonely here—
The bed is cold, and dust
Has settled on my brow,
While I lie here in the dark
Listening for your step,
Longing for your touch.
You’re gone again before
Tomorrow puts its pants on.
Take me with you!
