Love: Repeat

Jeanette's words echo
     love
          loss
                   love
             loss
      cruel yardstick
         yet here it is
         my entire being
         reaching for you
              you
    who sees my ugly
       and thanks me for
                       sharing
                            you
           who sits
            quietly
      as i write and write
                       you
    who touches my            
                            soul
              in the night
     whose quiet breath marks time
        who is calm and kind
   who gives me
                   hope
     that the measure of love
        doesn't have to be
              loss
