Late Evening Song

 For a while
Let it be enough:
The responsive smile,
Though effort goes into it.
Across the warm room Shared in candlelight, This look beyond shame, Possible now, at night, Goes out to yours.
Hidden by day And shaped by fires Grown dead, gone gray, That burned in other rooms I knew Too long ago to mark, It forms again.
I look at you Across those fires and the dark.
