Hearty goodness

Dear Friend and Love,
I could so very easily
Fall fast and deeply
In love with you
Turn to soft marshmallow
When I hug your insides
Like grandmother's
Raspberry flummery
But no, it won't do
That to be so sweet
You can only take me
In small doses
On grand occasion
Instead, I aspire to be
Hearty bone broth for you
Sipped daily
With dark brew
To make you glow

Sunset glow

We gift one another
Ample breathing space
To stretch the heavens
And earth between
Our waists
To render our thorn
Incapable of harm
Life as eternal summer
Soft shadow of looks
Cast behind us
Carry the weight
Of expectations
Where does your caravan
Take you, chasing sunsets?
In our sundowning years
Will we hold on
Till each a feather?
Strength yours to mine
Tussling fine fair heads
Offspring of better dreams
Each day carefully measured
From blink to downy rest
Smiles spark inhaling
Lines of chatter
Cascading like glitter
Observe the many watchful ways
I notice your sunlight
From within
Bask in it
