Future Us

oh, darling,

can you imagine us

together

waking up next to

each other?

I’d say, “Good morning"

and you would,

smile at me.

we would make breakfast

and sit on the verandah;

drinking coffee, laughing

at the hummingbirds

and the blue jays.

"you’re off to work already?"

"I’ll be back for lunch, okay?"

the car pulls away,

and I wave good-bye.

but you’ll be back,

I know you will.

quick kiss on the lips

out-of-breath, “I love you"

but your scent lingers,

even though you’ve gone.
