She said
Perhaps you’d like to stay
I said
I really shouldn’t

She said
You never used to say
You couldn’t or
You wouldn’t

I said
It’s been a long, long time
She said
But now we’re here

Our object’s closer
Than it might, at first

And we, once lovers
Then long friends
Became again
As one

The morning sun then
Shone on what
I wish
I hadn’t done
