Spent Time

Written by: Joseph Granda-Padron

We spent time together today,
Vero and I.
How we walked fighting the cold
Hand in hand beside one another
Like veterans of hope
And relationship
And trials.

We talked of what it would be like
To retire at 64 or 65
Buy some real estate and
Work on being together
Learning how to fall
Head over heels in love
With each other, again.

It felt good
Those few moments together
Against the cold and the rituals of time
And life and the world around us
And behind us not meaning
A damned thing.
It felt good to be together.
