Let Me

Let me cling to you
Like a spider on her web.

Swinging in the breeze.
Winding down, attached yet free.

Let me murmur words of love
Like the wind.  Soft. Steady. Strong.

Let's not mourn
What's been taken from us.

Our youth.
My waist line.
Your hair.

Let us rejoice
At what we have left.

Your smile.
Holding hands.
Spooning in bed.

Let me
Let you
Let us.



  1. Aww, I loved this. So sweet and romantic. Makes me think of an older coup,e who have been together forever, said everything they could say but still feel that connection.

  2. Why not? Togetherness is very important and often leads to wonderful delights.

  3. There is a fragility in asking but also an underlying strength and trust..invisible perhaps to those outside the web..but beautifully silver and strong to those bound together inside..Jae

  4. Beautiful. I love the freedom in this attachment. Thank you for is ode to love.

  5. This makes me think of my wife and myself - except I haven't lost my hair. Simply lovely!
