heart’s ache

I wish I could hold you
in my arms
like a newborn
lightly, to not crush your breathing–
delicate.

I won’t even kiss your face
too gentle.
Just look upon you.
And see the universe
In your eyes.

I wish I could sing to you
lowly and softly
an old song,
loss and grief
laughter and dancing
pour out for you all I have wept and drunk
in this crazy life.

And you would gaze up at me
wordless
and understand
all of it.
