Staying Put

Staying Put

How lucky we are to have found each other
on this huge planet. 

It’s not like we were supposed
to meet at a statue or there had been

any swiping left or right. No, we just danced
at a party, didn't even like each other that much,

so different we are. And yet.
Thirty-eight years later we still love 

a car wash. I still make the banana bread
we had each morning on our honeymoon in Maui, 

still have the index card with the recipe.
Is there a recipe for longevity? 

This morning in the gray light of early morning,
you whispered, "Don't ever leave me."
