brown eyes gaze into my blue ones
smiles tickle my nose
I am happy when you are happy; I am sad when you are sad.
We, two, together or apart. Merge souls from time to time.
Merge hearts and beat as one. Thud, thud and I think how comforted I am.
Your feet delight me, your hair; I long to touch. Your neck is soft; soft for kissing.
Your hands are steady, determined directly connected to the brain that is you.
I watch you walk and I am heartened.
I know what it is like to lose the people I love and too many of them at one time. I have lost places, trees and flowers lavished with care and consideration for many long years. For me, they are gone and do not exist; only in my memories of them which may not be true.
So, as I lose, I also gain. I lean in. I reach through. I go, once again.
You are the reason I live.
You awakened my heart and eased the sadness and a ray of sunshine shone through causing me to awake as though from a long winter’s nap in a cave and move toward the opening to feel the warmth of spring on my face.
I stepped to the door; you called me. You called again when I became frightened. You called again when I cried and held me and asked what was going on and wanted to probe my heart and I let you into who I am and what has happened and what will be.
Your strength and words are buttressing my life. I am cheered by your smile and laughter. Caution says it is too much too soon. Love says it is time. Time to feel good again and live.
