with me every moment
your frolicking heart
silently
sings the notes
from times long ago
familiar to us both

like the touch of my own hand
I know you
of my blood and body
yet from something divine
we so often forget
in our every day

within an ordinary pause,
a dream so vivid
I wonder if I sleep,
though my eyes stretch open
awed by the impossibility of you
inside me

how do I contain you
spilling out of my heart;
each euphoric surge
pure, inspiring
flooding my being

this momentary oneness
imprinted on my soul –
a new understanding
of love
