Now Gratitude

Now gratitude, and love, and joy:
That heart meets heart, and girl meets boy –
That you met me, and I met you,
And we’re not even close to through
With what there is to see; explore —
The love that wakes us, wanting more –
The endless glist’ning of surprise
That are the stars
Your eyes

it is as thoughts through fingertips
whene’er I touch your face;
and love comes pouring back on me,
transcending time and place

i only ask a moment more,
i only ask this hour;
and i would stay the march of time
if i but had the pow’r

which i do not, and never will,
and so, just let us drink our fill
of what we do have, while we can:
for loving now beats any
