It’s OK if I don’t go with friends to lunch-
I would rather be with you & just munch!
It’s OK if I don’t travel afar-
I would rather travel with you in our car!
I don’t, anymore, do yoga or zumba or swim-
I would rather walk with you & go on a whim!
Meditate to relax? I can relax with you-
Even watching TV – seem that’s what we do!
After 55 years it just seems natural for us two-
To be together in all that we do.
To do things without you does not seem fair-
Unless it’s shopping/errands – which you can’t bare!
Yes, the mundane I can do by myself-
Taking all that “stuff” off the store shelf!
But as for me to go & do my own thing?
Doing things without you would really sting.
No, I don’t think that would make me very happy-
That’s not for me – I need you to keep me snappy!
