Yes, you're sexy,
But it's about so much more than that.
It's about the music we listen to,
And the music we sing and play,
It's about watching the birds fly,
And hearing their anthem.
It's about matching our strides,
And appreciating our smells,
The tone and texture of skin,
And the qualities of warmth and coolness.
It's about playing,
Backgammon and mini-golf,
And nicknames, puns,
Corniness, and lots of laughter.
It's about swimming and walking,
And all the while talking,
And smelling the roses,
And honeysuckle and grass.
It's about watching the sky,
The clouds and sun,
The colors at dawn and dusk,
And the setting crescent moon.
It's about quiet longing alone at night,
And eager monging together in timelessness,
It's about willingness to face the hell,
of this present moment,
more than once,
For this heavenly being,
in most moments,
Is the most sacred, safe, and soothing,
place to dwell.
