To My Love

By Becka Choat

Remember how long
we waited,
all those years ago –
each of us agonizing
(privately)
over the perfect time,
the perfect place;
knowing we’d never have
a second chance
at the first time?

It’s all so easy now.
We’re older, of course.
But are we really wiser
than when we trembled
before the power of
a touch, a kiss?
