I’ve discovered a graciousness to life
That breathes in your pocket when we hold hands
Together in there when it’s cold outside,
Gentle fingers spooning because they can.
It has soft eyes and comes out when you laugh
At me when I’m in the passenger seat,
Repeating old jokes to my better half,
Surprised by how you still put up with me.
That secret seeps from your fair baby hairs
Onto pretty eyelashes that I watch
When I look up at you from your shoulder
To kiss your cheek with all the love I’ve got.
Love that is kind and happy without strife:
The unexpected graciousness of life.
