Sunflowers

Do you remember that time

when we sat together,

apart from each other, worlds away?

You asked me if it was okay to lay

your head in my lap and I told you

I would love nothing more than to run

my fingers through your dreams

and talk about when we could

plant our gardens.

And you laid there hot,

and heavy on my thighs

and I told you we should

pick sunflowers and name them all

proudly, this one for love,

this one for her, this one for him,

and this one for them, and for a life

you and I will never ever know.
