We were lying in bed

and the most beautiful sound
flowed like music down the hall
to our room
we stopped talking
just listened
it was wonderful
hopeful, filled with comfort.
It was laughter.
Our amazing children
step and blood
mingling together
in harmony
as if they’d always been
Real love
real caring
real laughter.
There was joy
a oneness
unforced and honest.
We could hear the smiles.
We didn’t move.
Our hands met
in the middle
mingling our fingers
as our children
mingled their voices.
It was beautiful music.
It was our children.
Our children were playing.
And together,
our children,
were laughing.

 L.G. 2006
