There are moments I want to live in forever,

to stop time

and let an eternity or two

go by,

like when your lips

are anywhere on my body.


Yesterday morning,

we invited the dog upstairs

for the first time since we got her.


She jumped on the bed,

laid down between us,

and barely moved for two hours,

so content just to be with her people.

Happiness and peace

radiating off of her,

eyes half closed,

as I just kept petting her.


There are days so filled with joy

(like the innocence

and excitement

of a puppy)

that I hope to remember them



I am so lucky

to love you both.
