Between Us / by Megan Hollingsworth

to

Sequoia.

If we both

lived this day

1000 days through

to the next day,

we could share

another 1000 mornings

awe struck. And since

there's no telling

not knowing how many, if 1, 

more blessed morning

there will be for you

or for me, I shall dance

a morning song for you

and this breath

between us

now as if

this is

my last

chance

to be

sure

I did

my best

to show

there's

no one

else

I want

to be

with.

and

you

go

with

me.

always. everywhere. truly. a fool who wasn't kidding. your dancer
