For Fen, because one day is closer than we know
Written 23/05/2019

One day I will get to show you my house in the sun. 

You will look on the fields and flowers

And trees with your own eyes

While my hand is clasped in yours. 


We will walk down Shop Street

Under the grey sky,

Chatter about the bright shop fronts

And make a run for it when the sky opens. 


You will sit on my bed,

Pencils balance on the shelf

And paper propped up against the side,

As we draw each other in comfortable silence. 


We will camp by the river,

The gurgle of the water

Soothing us to sleep,

Drawing comfort in each other’s presence. 


We will live in a place

All of our own, that

Protects us from the outside world

And all its prejudices. 


We will have a dog,

And a cat,

And at least 27 plants 

Sitting on surfaces all around our house. 


So that we trip over them

Every time we go somewhere

But we never mind,

Not really


Because it is ours,

And the furthest apart

We can be is 

A four hour drive down twisty country roads.
