What he never sees

Trace the corner of his lips with her fingertip
A fine line, pencil thin
Gray in scale, flushed from day’s exhaustion
With day break, a slow return of color
Light pink sprinkles of warmth return
Rested by minutes of peace
Softened by touch of strength
Humble he wakes
Unaware of hours passed.
