To Papabear As He Returns Home Each Day

Look, my constant Love,
See that spot?
You just brought it in the door
It goes with you everywhere
Though you never see:

Look, Papabear,
Your left shoulder
That you don’t notice
That serves us both
Out in the world–

But when you bring it home
You bring back to me
Peace at the center
Whisper of love
Longing for itself,

Lie down with me, then,
Let me lay my head there,
Listen to you breathe
To your great heart beating
The rhythm of my own.
