Dance with Me

Things I would like to do with you . . .

Take my hand in yours, even better if I don’t expect it or I’m in the midst of a chore I hate the most – like putting away laundry. Take my hand and pull me close. Dance with me. Whisper the words that remind me that I am yours. When your lips graze my ear, I will remember it all – how we got to this moment – how we fought for this. And I will never take for granted, showing you how much I adore you. Dance with me.

Things I Would Like to do With You

There are things I would like to do with you. I couldn’t list them all here. I shouldn’t list them all here. But here are fourteen, from the random places in my heart & mind – while I wait {every so impatiently}. Hurry up.

1. I would like to kiss you. As much as possible. As often as possible.
2. I would like to tell you my stories. Sometimes, when I’m talking too much & you want to laugh at me, and all of my words, I’d like you to remember how long I’ve waited for you. I have some catching up to do.
3. I would like to wake up beside you, in a cabin in the woods. Waking up beside you – anywhere else – will also suffice.
4. I would like argue with you.
5. I would like to make you laugh.
6. I would like to make you dinner. And laugh giddy with wine & the intimacy of things we only say to each other.
7. I would like to be your safe place to land – in the good times and bad.
8. I would like to keep you wild.
9. I would like you to know that I will always forgive you. Even when I don’t want to.
10. I would like to wander through a store or walk down the beach with your hand in mine or feel your hand on the small of my back.
11. I would like to discuss the finer points of meaningless nothings with you.
12. I would like you to make me coffee when I’ve been up too late writing & I dread the work day ahead.
13. I would like to spend as much time with you as possible and when we get to a point of annoying each other, find then that our moments to ourselves are just enough to remind us of how much we enjoy being around each other – even in the mundane.
14. I would like to discover new places, trails, road side dives, and hidden corners of the world, with you.
