New Pilgrim poem

 
Almost
 
She must be mine, hold hands 
dawn to dusk, dream one dream, 
sleep intertwined. We'll stroll
 
every night, spot the same star, 
wish the same wish. I'll give
endless gifts, kiss the deepest kiss.
 
We'll eat the same food, split
each dish. Share one job,
co-sign loans, carpool to work,
 
embrace all the way home.
Enjoy a great love. Or, come close.
Very similar dreams. Pretty much
 
the same wish. Occasional gifts, 
quite a deep kiss. More or less,
every dish. A few loans,
 
part of the way home. Romance
full of pure bliss. Almost.
In the beginning, quite a bit.
                               Timothy Pilgrim
