Closely Together 


We lay closely together

my lady upon her back

myself upon my side

my head propped by my hand

looking at her,

looking at my lady

and though

not classically beautiful

and though

not one that turn all men’s heads,

the beauty of this woman

the beauty of this woman I love

near taking my breath away,

the beauty of this woman,

this woman

that holds my heart

within her hands...

though not a religious type,

though far from a religious type

the beauty of this woman,

this woman 

that holds my heart within her hands

can only come from the hand of God

and so,

lying alongside this woman I love

looking at the face of this woman I love,

though not a religious type,

though far from a religious type,

thank you, God

I think,

thank you God for this gift,

this gift you give to me

this woman I love.

and to think you mentioned you were not a romantic
and even so...this is more than romantic
and much deeper than romanticizing as this is
a deeply rooted within the emotionality of love's bounty
and she your garden in full bloom
caressed and cultivated by her gardener & grounds keeper

A most tender & especially lovely offering Mark

Very beatiful done, almost as if it were spiritual itself as you contemplate and appreciate what you have.
