Sunrise

Seventeen after three a.m.
A single light burning brought me out of bed
Found you outside wrapped in an old bedspread
I asked what was wrong and you said

I don’t know the last time I saw a sunrise
And I can’t think why I never seemed to mind
It’s a shame, all the days I never realized
All the ways that there are to be blind

Said you woke up from a dream
Of younger days and outworn identities
You forgot, you said, so many things
“How’d this life get so goddamn distracting?”

I don’t know the last time I saw a sunrise
And I can’t think why I never seemed to mind
It’s a shame, all the days I never realized
All the ways that there are to be blind

I slip my arm around your waist
As you turn east
Waiting for the light of day
Together at least

Cause we can’t sleep anyway…
