Each moment is a gift

A box is built
Four sides with a lid still loose
Pine
Not a solitary mark to denote whom or what it will eventually contain.
Gently; with infinitesimal love,
The woman washes every pore
She follows the beutific lines of her Beloved
Lids she’d kissed a thousand times remain closed
Lips that spoke such sweetness stay shuttered
The hollow where she once took such comfort now taught and silent
Fingers
Toes
Loins
Remain still
An anathema for he was always moving
How is this possible
Yet all things are…
