A Letter To Love

            written as I think of you

                        (for Dominic Basile-Vaughan) 

Dear Love,


            You were delivered to me through the gentleness

of his eyes.  You were the warm tenderness – the healing

            I needed four years ago as my tears flowed

            silently on the heels of a sudden lost.


You came to me through the beauty of his heart

            on a night my mind tried with all its might

to shut out the pain I was feeling, a night in which I tried

so hard to fight the loneliness

            that for so many years was never before

so revealing.  As I look back, it was the moment of that night

that showed me a new existence,


            within him, through you, I felt myself matter

as our connection shared a new conversation both in words

and through our physical energy.  We have come together

as an unbreakable form of you, the bond created


during a time neither one of us expected

            but a time that changed our lives.  Now every time I look

into his eyes,


            I am reminded of the passion I have found

within that was always there waiting for just the right person

            to share it with.  I am reminded of the thoughtfulness


and the togetherness I’ve found; the emotional foundation

and support I have gained from every touch of his embrace –


            as he has given you a face, a body, a soul

that has become my partner for life. 




            a man in love.
