Dawnlight

We wake, both of us humming the same song. The same song from lifetimes otherwise forgotten—another age, maybe another world. You gasp first, but the breath lengthens into a deep draw, settling out a sigh.

I ask you the song’s name.

Who cares? you say. We can name it as we like today.

I nod. That’s the beauty of forgetting, I suppose.

A smile warms. Spring dawnlight haloes you, reaching in from the window behind your head.

We’ve just been born.

Touching your face, I ask you what my face looks like.
