Apple#487 on Valentine's Day
This one is for you, Luca.
It takes a double miracle for me
to see your soul; for both you and I must
move off our routine paths for it to be
revealed: a moment’s pause will be enough,
as our eyes meet, to share your burning bush.
Or will our busy lives’ distractions fill
our days and nights: our unremitting rush
forfeiting that which matters most of all?
All that counts is this: that I love you
and you love me. So, when some divine spark
ignites your passion, lift your head; gaze through
your lovedeep eyes to seek me in the dark.
Reveal that now’s the time to step aside,
and we’ll unite, and both will come alive.
