Sonnet #43: I hold creation

I hold creation cradled in my arms,
its heartbeat slightly faster than my own,
and the love that flows between us gently warms
earth, sky and seas; each beast, each plant and stone.

Vibrations resonate within my chest:
awakening, completion gently follow.
These moments, here with you, have been the best:
the loss that's soon to come will leave me hollow.

Let not the inevitable loss prohibit trust:
however much it hurts, don't be afraid
to love again; don't let some thickened crust
build up around your heart, don't barricade

against some future love for fear of loss:
the gift of love always outweighs the cost.
