Happy Valentine’s Day! This is the first poem I wrote after My Hubby and I started talking about getting married, which was around Valentine’s Day last year.

“Yours and Mine, Ours”

Talking of space
Talking of time
Talking of melding
Your life and mine
Talking of chairs
Where to put a desk
A corner for the rocker
A place for my antique chest
Talking about the kitchen
Space for a coffeemaker
For without my morning ritual
I’m quite the bear
Talking of dreams
And I must confess
I dream of sharing a bed
And falling asleep on your chest
Talking of love
Talking of a lifetime
Talking of melding
Your heart with mine.
