11 years ago

Eleven years ago today
I was suddenly bold
and brave
and daring

Asking a freshman
with a curly pony tail
and a tuba
and a voice from God
to come with friends
to a concert

and he said yes.

and later
when the friends were gone
he remained
talking into the night

I was shocked at his innocence
he'd never seen the Princess Bride
something to be remedied
immediately

and in the midst of
a kissing book read
a kissing movie running
my story became a kissing story too

and my life has never been the same.

11 years ago
today
a boy
and a girl
and a story began

and continues today.
no longer so young
but still a kissing story.
