You and Me

I laugh at your jokes
You smile at my pranks
We are friends forever
I was 13

When you asked me out,
I was surprised that you liked me
That way and you gave me my first kiss
I was 15

You whisper in my ear
And I giggle like the girl I am
You say you love me
I was 17

We go off to college and
You talk about marriage but
I say no with a knowing smile
I was 19

You propose over the summer and
I say yes through the tears
Cascading down my face
I was 21

Your voice rings out loud and clear
When you say I do and the crowd cheers
as we kiss each other at the door
I was 23

I double over with laughter as
Three kids come flying at you
And tackle you to the ground
I was 25

As I look back at these memories
A warm tear slides down my cheek and
I let out a sob.

We have come so far in
The past 12 years.
It has always been you and me,
Not me and someone else
Or you and someone else,
