When You Wake

Today we talked, you
Were strong, lighthearted
As always, but I knew you
Were in pain; I asked you to
Pick out a shirt in
A colour you like, so I can
Wear it (on I-miss-you days)
You said you’ll be out
In a little more while; I wished
We didn’t waste the last minutes
On silly issues that didn’t matter
But it’s okay cuz you know
When you wake I’ll be here.
