Between Us

For Mary; on our 45th Anniversary:


Together, we are looking
into the immeasurable night sky,
stunned by the incredible visibility.

Looking into the vastness of time,
feeling the immense impact
of the measured silence
that fills the space between stars.

To fill the space between us,
I slowly come behind you
and wrap my warmth around you.

No words are needed
as we treasure this time,
measuring the comfortable silence,
closing the distance between stars,
confirming the love between us.
