Made in Heaven (but not in Texas)

Made in Heaven

He yearns silence.
Distraction.
Distance.
Elbow room;
Thought room;
Silent listener;
Lively bed partner.

She yearns acknowledgement,
Soft music.
Candlelight dinners.
Intimate touch
Soft words
Planning

He gives what he yearns for.
She gives what she yearns for.
And both yearn
Through the majesty of years.

From Poems of the New Old West
