Falling habit

I’ve fallen into the habit of loving you–

Which is different from falling in love, I suppose–

For habits are harder to break than hearts

Which are easier to keep than promises;

And though I cannot promise I will not hurt you

For hearts are fragile

And I am in the habit of holding too lightly or too tightly

And letting love fall through my fingers;

I give you today

Which is all we really have anyway.
