Our Love

On realistic love

Our love has never been a sweet, jazz song,
simply honest talk between those who long
to be together despite all the change
that will happen as our lives rearrange.

Our love has never been a luscious poem,
just a journey where we build a new home
from scratch with wood, a roof, and so much trust,
laughing at the floors powdered in sawdust.

Our love has never been a prized story,
but a lifetime filled with even more
elation than I thought my mind could create.
Now may two become one on this perfect date.
