if it was me and you.

Your love makes me want to write.

In another life: we make more mistakes,
but less that hurt forever.
We have 9 kids and name them after
poets or people or memories.

I want a daughter named Penny.
Another named Piper.
Lets name a boy Royal
and his brother; Jack.

I want a Ruthie, Robin and Jade.
Give me an Otto, I’ll love a Wade.

Truth is I’d love a snail
if it was me and you.
Your eyes, my nose.
Your hair, my toes.

Lets make a baby,
even if we have to dream it up.
Let’s shop for cribs
and blankets
and watch the non-existent bump.


Lets just make more love.

  1. I just found you by way of The Diaper Diaries. SO glad I did. Now subscribed via reader. Thanks for this poem. I LOVE it.

    My husband and I have two. We are done. But if I had one more she’d be a Charlotte – aka Charlie.
