photo by John Ferris Robben, June 2012
Since this photo was taken,
I have filled the space 
between these hands with 
expressions of love for you
the pain of missing you
memories of pleasure
and happiness
I have filled the space
with poems
and words
that convey the depths of my feelings for you
I have fashioned gifts for you
full of feelings
my awe of you
of comfort
of home
you are here
with me
every day
in my heart
in my hands
in the space between
filled with love
