I see you, my funny friend
and my heart laughs, glad to be close again.
A soul mate comes once in a lifetime
so I'll run with the chance
to laugh and dance and sing
and let you know
that nine out of ten are always there for the breaking!
(My first poem for Ginny, written in the spring of 1983, when I was 17; we'd been talking about which of the Commandments we'd either already broken or would probably eventually break; both of us said no killing. To this day, I still haven't killed or committed adultery or borne false witness, so...I'm currently at "seven out of ten.")
