For Now (New Year’s Day 2017)

Back home on the back balcony
The sun breaking through the blue
The cold wind of New Year’s Day
Excites yesterday’s snow into life
Sharpens memories
Of you sitting wrapped
x    And warm beside the fire
Of our parting embrace
x    My arms around your tiny frame
x    Your face beautiful and old
x    Pressed against my chest
x    My lifetime contained within yours
For now
x    The heart you gave me beats next to yours
For now
x    The breath you breathed into me we share
For now
