Glow- a Love Poem

As I lay here in your arms in the smooth velvet darkness, 

with our baby son asleep next to us, 

I feel that my heart is so full that if you could see inside my chest, 

it would be glowing from within, 

the way the moon glows from the sunlight streaming behind it. 

My love would radiate from behind my heart and it would throb

and glow from too, too much joy

and so much fulness that it would flow out my fingertips, 

my mouth, my eyes. 

How can the room be dark when so much light glows from our love? 

And how is it possible for two mortals to find heaven on this earth?
