Time and Touch

sonnet for your magic

Time, that fussy, ego-driven toddler
That pulls on all our sleeves and whispers, “Now!”
That makes us all believe in its own vision–
A universe that spins, but Time says how–
One touch from you releases me from all that
Time’s tyranny would yet make me believe,
And in your eyes I see the years expand to
One graceful wash of love’s eternity.
My spirit, bowed to yours for its safekeeping,
Grows less bound to the body…
