a selfless moment

i find your love
in the filtered 4am light
slipping through the pane
to wake me softly
with a radiant kiss

but you save my lips
for another time
and, gentle, place yours
upon my cheek

this selfless moment
halts the greedy universe
proves right from wrong
clarifies the truth
shows me how to take
our next step

in sync with you
connected is my craving
held close
but free to fly
