It Was A goal Just to be Comfortable? Yes, comfortable! It is really a reward That comes with time. Not just the passage of time But time shared, spent with love And respect for each other, so that We reach a stage where no words are Needed. Not discarded, just not needed. What is required for us to ‘speak’? Glance Alone is sufficient for both eyes to fleetingly ‘Meet’ and when they do, the result’s a soft smile From each one to the other. And that in itself, is all That is required; communicating our love for the other. We sit in large chairs and dangle our arms till the fingers Reach out to each other but do not quite touch. Yet as in the Michael Angelo Creation, the fingers are close enough to spark The joy and reassurance that comes from us being so comfortable With each other. We do not doubt our love, for each there is no other Person that can come between and within the comfortable zone we have Created, and nurtured with shared experience, and soft whispering when we Lie in bed in each others arms and feel so safe because of the other’s embrace. The trust and love that creates this comfortable state, that so satisfies, takes years To build. There is no shortened way, no quick route, to a state of mind that Buddha Has called Nirvana. A sense of perfect peace, free from craving, anger and afflictive States, will embrace us. Thus even if only our eyes do meet we’ll feel so Comfortable.
