Only This

Sometimes
there is only this to do.
Gather the loves in your life
and hold them close
to the lining of the inside
of all that you are.

As they move away,
each to their separate worlds,
there is only this to do.
See them in their own skins
and note
that to love them
and have that love returned

is, after all,
to have the whole 
of what you'll ever
long for.
