to remember you by

we were going
to get
a hedgehog

a farmhouse
with a
well tended garden

an alpaca
a couple wombats
coffee with the sunrise

it may have
never been
real to you

but that was
where i went
in the quiet moments

slow dancing barefoot
across
the living room floor

i saw it all
so clearly
when my eyes closed

the setting sun
the ceiling fan spinning
your head on my shoulder

swaying to the sound
of our hearts beating
together

i have boarded up
that place
but still drive by wistfully

in the silence
you left me
to remember you by
