Do you remember

how I met you?

What about

how you

met me?

What did

you think of me?

Did you say

I was the prince

without any friends?

Who always

hid in the castle?

Do you remember that?

When we were small children?

I remember.

Wood blocks

and toy trains.

That's all we cared about.


Sweet sixteen.




Taverns and stories

And distant travel

To loud nightclubs

~and quiet walks in the park~


On to

our twenties

of nights

with too much wine.

Waking up people

with our laughter

and cries of aches

and pain.


Do you remember?

Well . . .

(I do.)
