you sing to me in effortless whispers

arias of forgotten tomorrows

resounding refrains of fading yesterdays

a pervading solo in a cappella


composing a unique completion

repeatedly taking my breath away

day after day newer than the last

without a need for punctuation


for the profound, exact  and inquiry

echo unbounded infinitely

nothing to indicate change of direction

but mild variations of inflection


swathed in comfort of reliance requited

I listen to your silent promises

sung melodic through interlocked lips

accompanied by strumming fingertips


for the first time grasping my own voice

while catching my breath in gasping sighs

I realize the song I hear is a duet

and we’re performing perfectly harmonized
