Tonight We Made Love

Tonight we made love
Laughter and cheese sandwiches
Over a bowl of tomato soup
Thoughtful sharing of heart and mind
Deep thoughts
Footsie played across the span between chairs
I read aloud
She fixed my computer
Tender words
Shared from tender hearts
I love you
Proffered not after the heat of passion
But in the realization of truth
Arm in arm
Lip to lip
We hugged and held one another close
I did the dishes
She scolded the complaining pooch
She laughed at dumb jokes
I told her of my pride in her
Tonight we made love
Not in any sense of entwining bodies
Musky passion
Tonight we made love
In word and deed
