My Perfect Ten

Ten acorns gathered on an Autumn walk …and then
Ten snowflakes in your hair on a cold Winter’s night …and then
Ten secrets shared as lovers lie entwined …and then
Ten beats, your heart so loud in my ear as I listen in wonder to your chest…and then
Ten kicks inside your belly swollen …and then
Ten hours of pain and joy …and then
Ten pounds so gently held on your shoulder as you sing Amazing Grace …and then
Ten uncertain steps taken towards your encouraging smile…and then
Ten years fly by and more …and then
Ten seconds that last a lifetime as he takes his leave
