She helps him hold the world
a little more closely and lovingly,
helps him look more carefully
at how life
displays itself in partnerships,
how the smallest things
slide together like perfect puzzles.
She shows him how
to bring the gifts of life
into fuller view,
the way certain paintings
seem to come forth from their frames
just for them
when they visit museums together,
holding hands sometimes
to stay close.
