The hypothetical He
who you choose to wait for,
leaving me

Will he know
how to tuck you in?
Will he hold you
as you close your eyes?
Will he know what to say
when a dreamsound wakes you?
When you reach out
from asleep-awake,
will he kiss your hand
and lead you back to sleep?
Will he know
you like to wake up slow?
To speak soft nothing
As the sleeping you lets go?
