Providence
 	  Nancy
Candlelight 
Kisses her hair
He would be 
Candlelight
This once
This final
Time 
 
She reads
A poetís tale
Love most precious
Priceless  
Lost
He hears
The fear
Hidden 
Layered
In anotherís words 
Sparing him
As best she can 
He hurts
For her
For himself
	Silence 
She looks up
Envies 
The bed that comforts him
Finds herself
Reflected
In his beauty
Cherished 
Adored
Knows him safe
Home
Healing
	Silence 
 	  
Loveís question 
Will you sleep 
You should
He tilts his head
Acknowledging her care
	Silence 
How to say it
Free her
He cannot
He must 
Catherine
Providence 
Your destiny
Awaits 
 	
	Silence
   
Resolve 
Settles her features
Lawyer
Lover
Woman 
Radiating purpose
He cannot breathe
	Silence
Vincent
You 
Torn from me
Dying 
Apart from me
I 
Existed 
Only to search
Forever
Each moment
A forever
Of dread
Hope 
Dying 
Each 
Moment
Vincent
Apart from you
	Silence 
Providence
Something meant to be
You said
Not a city
Vincent
Nor a job
We 
Are 
Meant 
To 
Be
We are
	Silence
Her gaze 
Releases him 
Chilled
In its absence
He steals a breath
Welcomes the heat
Of its return
	Silence
Know first 
My Heart 
I will not be persuaded
To leave 
Nor to believe
You 
Could truly wish
That I should go
We will
Consider
Together
Here
Vincent 
What Providence
Intends for us
	Silence 
Stay
	Silence
	
From somewhere
The syllable 
Mythical
Miraculous 
Glowing in the dark space
That cannot separate
Lovers  
His lips have moved
The voice is his
Emotion 
Fathomless 
Without name
Born 
Drawn new 
From all he is
	Silence
She moves beside 
Warming 
Calming 
Fisted hands
Embraced in 
Small 
Soft palms
Succumb
Relent
Unfold
	Silence
 
Upon his lips
A sweetness
Her 
Touch
He dies but for green eyes
Rising to his
A promise
 
	Silence
I will
	Silence 
A heart knows
Reality
Beyond possibility
Joy 
Beyond ecstasy
He
Is
The Beloved
Hers
Of any she might have loved
Beneath the yellow sun
A nightís white stars
Below 
Among the stones
She has chosen 
Him
In the Silence
for H, as always
