Your better love

How easy it is

to grasp too tight,

squeezing the life out

of the things we long for.

If only it came a little easier,

to hold life lightly,

a butterfly on the finger.

The energy used

in trying too hard,

takes the time for joy

and it’s lost in the effort.

But all I need is a moment to pause,

lifting eyes to autumn light,

a gap to gaze at you…

and through it all,

your better love finds me.
