After you left
I found them
even though
we did a final sweep
for any stray belongings

They were covered by
a pillow
tossed with the others off my bed
in a hurry

I thought how
you'd miss their warmth
around your toes
just as I'd miss
your embrace

Brown and leathery
in the shape of you
paint speckled edges
evidence of your hard work

seeing them
they surprised me
everytime I wandered
over to the other side of the bed

their presence in my room
declaring your recent
temporary occupation
reminding me
you'd really been here
in this bed
with me
