Just for today, let’s pretend all is well;
that once was, still is;
that a breeze blown from the right direction
can lift mountains
and carry shadows away into the night of another day.
Because, my love,
some things still are.
Some things still quiver under aging flesh.
Desire, though obscured by the burdens of time, still pulses.
Hope still begs to be seen
and light still shines
when your hand takes mine.
