Nightlight

14 Nov
On a sidewalk bench in Nashville, Indiana,
a September full moon
was so intense that it made your face shine 
like a child's as we sat holding each other, 
contentedly looking up.

Your love was so sure 
I couldn't distinguish ours apart
coursing through my entire being
capturing the surrounding beauty into us
& filling the empty places--

There was only one light under the lamps
on that midnight sidewalk.
