Growth Factor

Because I believe in you
most all of the time
the sun comes shining through
to light my way more clearly
than ever it had before
upon this seemingly damp
middle of March grey day

If it had been any more than chance
which came, luckily to me
in the moment I first looked up and saw
you, looking curiously, and smiling
then my heart would not now be
burst open and rejoicing
with the liquid slow of our love
flowing from between your thighs
knowing more truly than ever
that because I believe in you
despite these many years
I am still growing
