A Valentime Poem

Patrick Gerrity

So heavy.
So persistent.
You never let up.
You never let go.
Loving all,
with ever-reaching embrace.
Through life and death.
You make us strong,
as we strain away from you;
and you remind us of our weakness;
as our fires grow cold.
Pulling our bones deep into your hearth.
The land is ground fine with your affection.
Why won’t you take a break and let us up,
let us go float around awhile.
We’ll come back.
Where else could we go?
We’ve always fallen for you,
since before we knew your name.
