Moving Words

I watched his mother ask if he was pleased
I’m visiting tomorrow. He replied
“Of course. I love her” – simple words that squeezed
my heart with pleasure like his toddler hug.
(My lust for true affection was appeased –
this happened in our FaceTime call last night).
I’m caught by his sincerity. I’m seized
by shining eyes and mind. I’m gratified
and charmed, full worry-free and weary-eased.

(Magic 9)
