Since I Met You

October 10, 2012 4:23 pm EDT

Here's what I ought do:
Respond to my emails
Rewrite my latest novel
Enter my expenses into QuickBooks
Wash my car
Go to the gym
Write some custom code
Make a few dollars

But, since we talked,
Here's what I want to do:

Dance in the sunshine
As the clouds part, make way
Write you a fresh poem
Today and every day

Imagine two cups of coffee
Separating us
In a Starbucks in the northwest
While learning
Each color of your eyes

Traveling to the old country
Rome, Paris, Sicily
Tipping the gondolier
As we disembark
Holding hands
In Venice

My mind wanders
My heart flutters
And all that seemed to matter yesterday
Matters not today

Your brave finesse
Your perfect beauty
Your kind heart
Has changed me
Has moved me
To a new understanding
To a new path
