just napkins XIII

i am beginning
a chapter or three
words unforgiving
but laughing with thee
i have been hungry
i have been cold
so here i am written
dirty but bold

times are a-changin’
i’m certain of that
some people are fading
but we’ll all be back
there is a home inside of your chest
but a bed and a shower
equals a well earned rest

how do you sleep
when you can’t speak through
coughing and beeping
whistling; dixied
oh how i wonder
oh how i rhyme
the past month is over
now it’s my time
to shine
to dine

oh, oh, my love
where have you been
i’ve seen you, but your face
has been hidden
still i can wonder
still i can dream
but i know for certain
this love
