Time. There’s never enough time or energy to get everything accomplished. There’s always something else that needs attention. Someone pulling us in different directions. Obligations calling us; taking us away from each other.
There’s barely a moment to say hello. A quick kiss goodbye is overruled by a grumbled groggy pull of covers over the head to catch one more second of too little sleep.
The end of day is a no winner snore. The chase to claim the perfect blanket grip.
Who is this stranger we share a bed with?
How do we reconnect?
