Absorbing You


Fading gently into rest I listen to your words.
The deep contractions of your chest leave not a breath misheard.
Relaxing fully to the sound I feel a sigh release;
Enraptured by the bliss I've found that brings my soul to peace.
Then whisper, softly 'I love you', alas, my heart is swept;
'Always, darling, pure and true my promise shall be kept.'
And, with these words you sense from me a silent, soothing grin
Yours returns, my heart can see; so, close my eyes again.

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
