valentine's day poem for my wife

laughter -- that's the sound
i've missed. how your voice bounces &
swoops down stairs &
around corners, through walls.

visit me there; here,
again -- help me find
new ways of exploring joy,

voicing it though singing, making
love, answering again this dance
in & out of time, wearing
eternity like a promise,
this full-throated exultation.
