Remembering (Draft 1)

Give me my hug my love
because I’ve had a nightmare,
forgot you were here beside me

So wonderful to remember you again.

Oh sweet face, can we have breakfast
and walk on the beach with potato bread
to make the seagulls laugh, and there is

no sunrise as magnificent as you
when you touch me in the morning
and I remember all of you
