Only I

Only I
See him up close
The fine arch of his nose
His jaw, strong and true

Only I
Will kiss those lips
Classic Greek and full...
Their sweetness overwhelms.

My hand rests
On his downy chest;
His heartbeat stays my calm
My breath joins his as one

Only I
May view his visage
From this close, safe angle ~
The lines of kindness tell me,

They know,
Our love is boundless,
Shared deeply o’er the years,
And naught shall come between.

For I...
Am inner circle,
There are no others here,
Together, alone, love’s all we own.
