For Jacqui

We believed we were lizards
Basking on rocks
We lay under different suns
Weathered different storms
Shed our skins

Now our suns are gone
The rock we share is cold
Our skies, cool and grey
We are slow and weak

It is so cold, my love

But we are not cold blooded

And even if we never feel
That heat again
I’ll stay here with you
Sharing what warmth
We make for ourselves
