Samantha Wassel because i said so

Perched in my soul

like doves, your hearts

beat against a cage

of rib. They sing

to my own. Harmony—

a ballad of lifelines

entwined. We are

a symphony, with God

as our conductor.

Prayers pulse

among the palpitations.

They rise above

notes of love and unity,

begging to keep you

close. I cling

to our song, grasp at

the wafting essence

of you. I will

the music to play

on, to fill me a little

longer. We need

more lines, more verses,

more time

to grow together.

It’s too soon for you

to part with

the chorus. Let’s keep

the lullaby alive.
