you gave me a gift
this past visit
of letting me just
be present

touching you, walking
together in a museum
making dinner
listening to music

the gift of being in my skin
for a whole weekend
and so much so, that,
although my mind desired

to feel my skin against yours
another time, you held me
and we drifted easily
into sleep

When I next see you
then, my lover,
your skin and mine
will remedy that oversight
