On the bus with your boyfriend, you stole glances.
At the youth camp swimming pool, I showed off.
In the church office, you helped me make copies.
At a Valentine’s banquet, I outdrew you with a squirt bottle.
On our first date, you ate the steak like it was good.
For our first ride in my used Duster, I shined the bench seat with Armor All.
When I broke up, you waited.
When I went away, you stayed.
When I asked you to marry me, you said, “Yes.”
Over twenty years ago we met.
