The meaning of life

The meaning of life

In the darkness
in the silence

of the waking day
no bird song

no movement
my heart beating

my breath slow
measured

comfortable
at peace

with my dreams
I think of you

of our common
expectations

and the small
courtesies

that strengthen
the bond of love

John Lyons
