Because I grew after the Death,
I was able to see
how right you were, so right for me,
for immortality.

We slowly grew; we knew no haste —
and you had put away 
the other who had been with you

We passed the times of living alone;
we traveled well, and then —
you said, let’s buy a house; and so
we looked and found the one.

Or rather — we lucked out — to buy
this place first day of sale.
It’s nestled us and furry friends
like tadpoles are by pools.

We paused at a chapel, a place
in Liberace’s town — 
the owner led the vows for us 
(no Elvises around).

Since then, has been nearly two years —
and better every day —
as if we were destined to be
for eternity.
