Between the Lines
I feel like Alison, although I don't always reply...
but this one D, is truly you from before, during and after and I especially love this since I am coming upon that 60 very soon
"I guess that is what we had in common
that comfort of mutual discomfort
and you didn't want to be lonely at fifty
nor did I at sixty you imagined
but you would keep yours a little longer
because it was easier then arguing
with the cold man that you danced with
and I would keep mine too you predicted
since you didn't see me giving up freedom
to be just a prisoner of contentment"
Here's to you always "riding faster"
with very kind thoughts,
(btw, I think I missed wishing you a happy one)
