the whole show

she lit december candles
on the icy front porch
two cocktails and two hours
for two old souls to reconnect

i could listen to her voice
spin around forever
nod my head at her disbelief
widen my eyes at her crescendo
and smile as her story ends

to be a part of her tale
to know she chose me
is the greatest honor
and i intend to be around
for the whole show
