How much can one person love another?
A universe exists in time and space,
Placed within the boundaries of one place,
Placed within a time far from forever.
Yet love comes to us from some quite other,
Visiting our sorrow with its grace,
Answering our rage with its embrace,
Leaving just a whisper of its wonder.
Even as I say this, you are there,
Nestling in where need undoes the day,
Taking up your small infinity.
Inside my heart, you wander everywhere,
Nor would I wish such innocence away,
Even were life bitter as the sea.
