The Power of Love
by Maralee Gerke

You lie unresponsive
but this time I know you can hear my voice.
Using all of my strength and love
I pull you back from that dark place.
I gather you into the center
of our passion to the safety of the last
silent place where we were one.
No longer can the world intrude
on our private paradise.
Finally you reach your arms out
to me and we embrace
holding each other’s fear.
