and now my days

(circa 1986?)

bruce and i celebrate 28 years together this month … over that time i’ve written quite a few poems honoring our relationship … this is from many years ago …

and now my days
begin and end
with you
and what i do
or what is done
to me
those sweet parentheses
is easier
by far
because we are

like morning sun
your smile meets me
on the edge
of waking
and your touch
at night
restores me
like the moon
returning tides
to the waiting
arms of shore

with the continuity
of seasons
our cycle
is repeated
and nothing
seems daunting
or impossible
for time’s defeats
are certain to be balanced
by days
that begin
and end
with you
