The nights are silent; still warm from memory’s fervent glow.
It is times like this that one knows the power of a simple wish.
Desire and possibility provide the agility for these to transpire
fed by the fire that smolders within hearts shared in love.
Always giving, all ways forgiving. Always living for the other
to survive another day of life together. Whether out of want
or insistence, she offers no resistance; a willing partner
of the heart. He expresses in rushes of words that seldom
overwhelm; they nudge and cajole and caress – the best use
of tenderness which she welcomes. It is a wish they make
that takes every private moment worth holding and
molding it into a life well lived, given in the dream of hearts.
