For Him

For him I came like drenching rain,
that first coy day more summer than spring,
every drop startling warm to ease his parch
and feed the roots he thought too dry
to bloom with ecstatic life.

For me he came like soft cashmere,
chasing the cold from my winter
like a prophet too hip
to ignore, or discount.
A voice like mulled thunder
with a rasp of cognac blues.

For us there is no homeland,
just the vast expanse
of egyptian cotton dreams.
Now he says "You must let me go"
and forgives me the smile
that says I already knew.
I already have.

For him I will fold the dreams neatly,
pack them in cedar chips,
and get a look when I am old
that will make the grandkids wonder
what on earth nanna is thinking.

All this I will do...for him.
