half asleep

waiting at the doctors

reading a womens magazine

& there in easy print

a tale of softness

caresses fingers tracing love

on hardened faces

kisses cuddles gentleness

everything you can think of

& just before they called me

falling into reverie

of the first time I felt a touch

something other than a blow

her fingers feeling my face

using words for kindness

wanting nothing from me

just joy happiness

& learning to accept that

was harder than anybody

will ever know

thinking before that

I was but half asleep
