In the Moment…

In the moment I see you,

I see the young man I met forty years ago; that young man is still in your eyes.

In the moment I hear you,

I hear love in tones of laughter and contentment.

In the moment I touch your hand,

I feel all those calluses from hammer strikes and roofing nails and concrete pours,

And I cherish the home you have made for us.

In the moment I sit beside you,

I hear you breathing, and I am grateful for each breath.

In the moment I lie beside you in the dark,

I close my eyes to join you in peaceful sleep where we may meet in dreams.

In the moment when I lean against your shoulder,

I feel all the love I have for you.
