Shift swap

by Em

My morning, your night
either way we both have light
Mine from the sun, yours from the moon,
I guess we'll rendezvous this afternoon.

Tell each other about our day,
Well, I'll tell you as you start on your way.
Swapping shifts, it sees us through
quite something else, I tell you.

Like passing ships we anchor through
with thoughts of the things that we'd do.
If anybody knew, they'd think we were lying,
things in common and barely even trying.

Now I'm sleeping it's your turn for day
and dreams of you will come my way.
I hope you're thinking of me, like me of you,
you don't need to tell me as I know that you do.

Lovely write Em, I'm liking the romantic you more, wish all lovers could communicate as you portray here "telepathically ",there'd be fewer broken hearts.

Em, a beautiful write about two people who love each other and work opposite shifts to make their family work. You described it so eloquently. Well done Em!
