Everywhere we go, they’re all that we see.
Turtles everywhere.
Every place we walk,
Every place we drive,
Even on our phones.

It becomes a part of us,
Like a song or a memory.
We buy each other small things,
A children’s toy, a small sculpture.
To show that they will always be with us,
Like we will always be there for each other.

He leaves for two weeks, all the way to Florida.
I still see turtles everywhere I go.

He finally comes back,
And he brings to me,
Two turtles on a chain,
One silver, one green.
Something I’ll keep forever.
One turtle for him,
One turtle for me.

My boyfriend and I always see turtles.  I mean they are everywhere we go.  So when he came back from his trip to Florida, he got me a beautiful necklace.
