Deserving (#7 Na/GloWriMo 2019)

I deserve this memory.

My heart leapt in welcome

Seeing you for the first time:

Stranger that I knew.

The first kiss

So much later, stolen,

A high-wire thrill,

Bungee jump high.

You driving me.

The long road,

High mountain lake,

Beer and a granola bar.

9 minutes at the DMV.

Man and wife.

Hands fastened with friends,

Hearts fastened with love.

I deserve tonight,

Your patient voice on

Speaker. P joint lessons.

Kindness in every syllable.

We deserve us:

New beginnings,

Old feelings,

Our love written before time.
