Friday night, winter, pandemic, quarantine;
One year anniversary a month away
Candle light and music humming
– somewhere out there sweetness
Floating in the warmth of the moment
Reaching across the table you brush my hair
Away from my face with care and ease
You hold my heart in your hands gently
A tender touch that has refreshed
My soul and faith in what true love
Was always supposed to be, meant to be
Unconditionally welcoming and cherishing
A bright beautiful light shining orb
My chest that once ached and bled from betrayal
Now rests with delight and promise
You turned my ambivalence into trust
And the only question I have these days…

“Would you like another cup of coffee love?”
