a christmas poem for my wife

loudly, sometimes, i protest.
i find so many ways to
scar the moment, so easily.
& each time i regret it.

very well then, you would say,
& rightfully so - what words
need saying that might mend?

verbs, perhaps. & all their accompaniments:
love, entreat, serve. or else:
intimacy, rest, hope. & then:
embrace, partner, joy. always, 
time. more time. always, time.
