Give and Take

Motivated to try and inch up

getting close means the trigger source

will be there to touch and play

with a string of heavy demands

commanding time and attention

to be exclusively ours.

In other words,

what I meant to say

was go ahead and come close

tiptoe there on the edge,

so that eyes are up into eyes.

These are our first times

even if, we’ve been here

a thousand times before

you ever decided to move.

From this night forward

guard our forever bond

don’t let it get stolen

from distracted hands.

From this and that

make today your favorite mission

change everything if you must,

make the pleasure in giving

a part of your daily plan.

You and your lists

keeping track of the minutes

until we’re back in position

that place where one simply gives

while the other takes.
