she wants me to let her sleep but i can not
‘i haven’t seen you in coon’s age’
WHAT IS THIS ANIMAL YOU SPEAK OF?
her broken french accent -Quebec with a hint of Ottawa Valley
‘baby’ i say – ‘i need to remember you too much right now to let you sleep’
but still she is questioning
WHAT IS THIS POOR ANIMAL YOU SPOKE OF?
‘forget it baby – just let go of the pillow and hug me one more time’
and she smiles
and she let’s go of the pillow
and she hugs me like a tiger
and i keep this moment alive for a night time
for a life time….
