How They Love

Bodies that sway
forgotten
by time

She leans
in
to him

forgetting
for the moment

he has not
always
been there

She can’t remember
taking a breath
without the beat
of his heart
next to hers

She tucks
her head
softly
into his neck

His arm
slides
around
her small
shoulders

This
is how
they face the world
weather the tides

This
is how
they love
