Married Tenderness | A Poem by G.S. Katz

It’s not quite sex
But it is passion
I call it “arming”
It’s tender and sweet

Aligning myself next to her
Gently rubbing her arm as she sleeps
It’s light and feathery
A message of love not lust

She smiles slightly
Knows I’m there
As soon as I see her expression
I fall back into slumber without a care
