THIS MORNING I READ HER POEM AND IT WAS WRITTEN LIKE THIS AND I LIKE THIS

               REQUISITE RECOLLECTIONS

I recollect it was sometime between childhood and the alter 
You weren’t allowed in our club for only boys
The one midst the leaves of that old oak tree from which we hung

When we were young

I recollect us changing, 
not year by year but day by day
Each day we talked about disparate dreams
Delightful  differences to which we so tightly clung

When we were young

I recollect it was somewhere between one day and the next
You went to sleep  angry, I went to sleep remembering the music
All the voices singing in harmony that we were treated to
Lo, I fell asleep remembering all the hope filled songs the both of us once sung

When we were young

I recollect a vow once made midst pews and stained glass windows
While staring into the eyes of our future and what was to come and what was to grievously go
There was a time I would have let you in that club for only boys
Except I excluded you because vehemence was victorious over vows
I recollect it was somewhere between a thousand smiles but and a hundred thousand  frowns
And some men like me are born and bound to come out of a little car with a hundred other 
clowns
One night We both vowed that we will allow no love song go unsung 

And maybe that’s what keeps us young
