The Day My Heart Stood Still

I’ve never loved this way
While in this form
Until our hearts met

This heart which has captured
Enraptured my very essence of being
Has given me pause

The sing song voices
Still echo through the caverns
Laughter is our medicine

As we find tentative steps
Among uneven edges
Please let’s keep hold

Hands guiding
Words nourishing
A simple thought

Brought to life
With our intended union
The planting of new life
