my best friend

photography by the wonderful Jeff Slocum
Right now I would
In emotional ecstasy
Trade a century of love
For three days with you.
I would give all my breath
To see you for an instant
To put my existence
with yours
Just to have you
Sit in a corner
In your own world
And occassionally
Let me see inside.
I would donate all my books
To Goodwill
Just to hear you laugh.
I'll send you a daisy
If you'll think about me.
