Book Nights

I savor each time

We share our food,

Our lives,

Our books

Over wine in dimly lit

Places where the chatter

Rises and falls.

In these moments

We suspend time,

Stretching it to reveal

More of ourselves

Little by little,

With our triumphs and tears

Over raising daughters,

Caring for parents,

Loving our husbands.

These sacred nights

Save me.
