Here’s to Now

I don’t know who you are

But I want to.

Even if we don’t see each other today

Or the next day,

Or the day after that

I know there will come a day

When we will

And we will stay

Side by side

For as long as time will


What are your habits?

What music do you listen to?

What do you go to bed at night dreaming about?

And what caused you to have the best

Laugh of your life?

It’s hard not to grow impatient,

Or think about how many things

You already haven’t been a part of.

But, you will show up

Not a moment too early

And not a moment too late.

Perhaps, there will even come a day

When we wish the other would leave.

But, I promise

With everything in me that

I won’t.

And I know

With all of my being that

You won’t either.

You’ll be stuck with me,

And I with you

Until the bitter end.


Here’s to now

While we wait,

Neither of us knowing exactly who,

Or what

The other will look like, talk like, or

Act like.

Here’s to now, as we travel and laugh

And dance the night away.

Yet, most importantly,

Here’s to now as we wait, and evolve

Into the people we were destined

To love.
