When I Found You

When I found you, there was only that unspoken word
that said I need you in my life. Every move we’ve made
stretched on into forever and I wanted to sink myself
in the endless remaking of our moments, in your arms.

There is no need for me to run now, my love. My pain
has lapsed by the sentence of your words, slayed
in the safety and the gentle ease of your love.
I laugh at your tenderness: Let me be your only desire.

Tell me I am your forever, too. For I rest my mind
in my forever with you. Our long days will be forever
short, so short there is only our endless now. Endless
as our dying days together, as we are old, so we are young.
