A Given

We stare at each other
from our rocking chairs
in silence.
You brightly fumble
for words
as I shift,
averting my eyes.

What is there to say
that we have not
already said?
Could we just be still
for this moment
and savor these raw emotions
and embark upon
suspended time?

I will not disappear
nor will fortune change
our trust.

Look into my eyes
deeply, my love
and know
that I am here.
