Being in her arms embraced not only by her arms but by her love and his love for her
In this moment, this very very moment
There is nothing, absolutely nothing else
But the rapture of being enraptured by her by him by love by wonder
Everything else can wait its turn
Because the world, yes the world, has its demands
And the world can bring you down low
But the world, yes the world, has also provided her and him and love
So that they can soar together in these moments these very very moments
And forget everything else.
