The Two of Us

There is joy in your naked butt
There is reason in your elegance
There is safety in your arms
But I still remember the time in the coffee shop
Years ago
The angry discussion
The flirtation with a stranger
Your betrayal
My humility
Or reconciliation
The coupling
The ecstasy
The damned way you saw through my lies
And my life was enriched
By that kiss
The one you give me
And when I say I love you
You smile
As if
The whole world is ours
You make me feel better
Than the hope of a million bright shining tomorrows of promise
Because you are love
And I am your willing captive
On this Sunday
And on all the other days
Of our strong and healthy twoness
