Let us chime together,
stepping forth into the hour
where all time stands still.
Our fingers can link, we will be grafted.
Your warmth radiating into me and
my warmth radiating into you.
Our lips may not touch,
but our minds will.
We can speak until the hour is up
or we can be silent.
Lack of words is not lack of companionship.
In that moment, we can be constant.
We can be us.
