For Bede

I lay still
While my loved one,
Sleeps.
 
His warm hand
In my hand,
I hear his breath
And follow the
Sound, of in and
Out.
 
I realize our
Time together,
Lessens, as tears
Fill my eyes.
 
He awakens
And smiles,
His eyes
Seem to say:
Enjoy this moment,
It’s all we have.

(2014)

For my love of 36 years
