The Body is Tired

Isn’t it true
that
saying “I miss you”
in the middle of the night
is less of a truth
than in the morning?

One is spoken
when
the body is tired–
spent, weak, solitary,
spoken when
the mind has boiled down
to a single thought:
“I wish I wasn’t alone tonight.”

The other is spoken
when the body is young–
fresh, awake, renewed,
spoken when
the mind hasn’t had time
to filter through the
swaying thoughts
of the day,
spoken when
your voice speaks
without waver
without trepidation
with strength

With the clarity of the morning,
no foggy breath.
One is spoken
with a meaning.

“I miss you.”
