Doug Anderson: What time does to love

I know the spring is there.
I walk over it and feel its pull.
Pure, cold, searching for some place
to rest. A pool. A river that would
darken and warm it into new life.
You have always been there.
Your hands that have been so many places,
now, resting in mine, tell me tales.
Your heart split open. All that.
I have my favorite caf├ęs in Hell
and in Heaven. Let us turn off 
all the lights and get into bed. 
Feel for each other, for the other 
inside the other that melds grief with love.

    Beautiful. There is a longing, a hope melded with grief that happens in the spring.
