the ride down

i wonder if you wanting
to ride your motorcycle
has anything to do with me
you say you like who you are
maybe i do too

if you love our sons
and you love your parents
and you love God
and you love me
what more can i ask for?

so i’ll give you Tuesday evenings
if you want them
picnics in the park
who knows what
it could become

but i’ll stand metaphorically still
and wait for you
wait my entire life
and now i’m sure
that’s what i’ve been doing
for nearly 27 years

i’ve always been yours
i just didn’t know
who i was and
didn’t know how
to let you love me
