Just for today, because I feel so full and whole and good
I would take you in my arms
You, with all your gorgeous problems
and tiredness of life
and I would hold you.
This is the face of the feminine I most love and least visit.
But today, today she is within me.
That I could sit
letting your back rest on my torso
my arms around your shoulders
my palms on your chest
and let you rest.
You. All of you.
Just for today…
