Middle Aged Couple

The middle aged couple
duck into the coffee shop
out of the rain
he guiding her in
with his tallness
his caring
she smiling back and up to him
physical closeness
echoing emotional.

And I think how blissful
is this trust,
this communion
how protected they are
under this umbrella of concern.

And I wonder
could I ever again
be this unguarded
this caught up in devotion.
