almost forty years


here we are

remember that day in the park?
i was 19 and you 23
we spoke of "someday"
we made plans

your voice was like warm bread
with butter and honey
i loved to hear you say my name
you sang about the baby rabbit
you made a promise
do you remember?

you told me
"you will never be sorry"
it was scary
the hardest thing i had ever done
but i believed

and you kept your promise
