He Washed Me

We were sitting
Together he and I 
Just talking
About life and love
I asked him
Explain love to me
I had seen so much
Complexity
I wanted to know
More of love

He left for a moment
I felt all alone
A bit distressed
I longed for him
To return and he did
Carrying a bowl
Of water and a towel

I looked confused
But decided to see
What was to come next

He took my hand
Rubbing softly
Each muscle
Massaging me
My breathing
Slowing down
I am comforted

He takes a sprinkle
Of the water
Caressing my hand
Dabbing
With the towel
Letting
This loving care
To sink into
My very being
He said softly
This is love
Please go and spread
This love
Everywhere
