We are both old enough to know
there are no guarantees
not marriage
one can still die
or linger in illness
and failing dependency, slow loss
or wake one day with cancer
or a heart that no long pumps with strength

yet I want you anyhow
not to own not to have not to hold
if I could just see you sometimes
I would see you daily if I could

but sometimes
is this moment
with you
