This is Why I Love Him

Love is something
so sublime
it reaches from the son
to his mother
and back to his lover
with such ease
it makes me teary
to observe the shoulder
that will steady
one this afternoon
and be a pillow
to the other after the day
has had its way—
and duty will not
have been an obligation
but the purest
source of joy and
brief rejuvenation.
