36 years since we met
Living in today with the you of yesterday.
You are my rear view mirror.
Memories of time, the tangible part of our now with a hopeful maybe in future weeks.
“Tattoo you” on the wall next to the spot where I fell in love with you, over and over, like the coiled phone chord wrapping around my fingers
Your name on my shoulder and heart;
I carry you in my bloodstream and under my skin
