Love Divine - Poem by Teresa Gonzalez-Lee

She thought she did not love him
and when she saw him
suddenly she felt this protection again
and then his weakness
when searching for a light in the room, he asked:
"-May I borrow your eyes?"
-She wanted to give him her eyes. He surprised her with dinner at the hotel room
the son of the first wife, and the daughter of the second
sitting in one corner of the room, father and children together
Her, the first wife, on the other side.
Once again, he had provided the "loaves and fishes"
as he used to, when their marriage was young. Love divine, can go underground,
hiding for twenty years
and all of a sudden
it can raise its wondrous head
like a flower under the heaviness of winter.
