Your arms envelope me without hesitation 

and my body inexorably molds to fit yours. 

Our love will never falter, if that’s any consolation, 

for my feelings for you will transcend years.


Though our fondness for one another bloomed

from the soil of a most fortuitous apparatus,

the intimacy we share was groomed

thoroughly to conclude in a change to our marital status.


What appeared to others as a rush to forever

became something more than we imagined. 

Something so warm and idyllic could never

fall apart with our investment tightly fastened.

When I look at you, 

I see my night and my day.

For without you,

I would surely be in disarray.
