See you soon.

If your skin starts to boil

And you've run out of books

When you're tired of puzzling

And thinking

And talking

Peel open your sheets

Turn the light back on, love

And know that I'm missing

And probably wishing

All my time away


If it's been a few days

And the charm has worn off

Of second hand stories

And photos

And calls

Walk to your window

Find out the moon

And know that I'm missing

And probably wishing

All my time away


If it comes mid November

And the wait's getting long

And future tense dreaming

Feels hard

And less fun

Go buy a tall tree

Fill it with lights

And know that I'm missing

And probably wishing

All my time away
