Just a moment dear

You're only up the stairs,

moved recently from view,

you hear my happy shout,

and yes, I love you too.

 

Only in our bedroom

putting something right,

frowning in concentration

with sleeves rolled up tight.

 

Capable hands and forearms,

you're smiling at my call,

whistling through your teeth,

tapping on the wall.

 

Only in the next room,

only up the stairs

eavesdropping on my prayers.

No distance at all.

A very moving poem which leaves much to the ' don't go there' imagination - it ticks the right boxes for me - and my seasonal best wishes also
