Leaning Chairs

“Built to last” means
Only for a while,
“Meant to be” seems
Happenstance, at best,
Weariness is more
Of a vocation,
When all this searching
Keeps us from our rest.

But, my love, we
Have these certain moments
We at least can deal in
Common cares,
And maybe neither one of us
Feels sturdy,
So we can be a pair of
Leaning chairs.

I can have your back,
I can support you,
Just as you have mine,
Supporting me,
And maybe it’s not glamorous,
Or gaudy,
But wow, it feels like it’s

Supposed to be
