Retrieval

we try to
but seldom do
what’s gone is done,
there
could be a would we
and if we did
then should we
but we
never do.

I’d be lost without you,
the only map that I hold is
of us growing old
together.

The chemistry or alchemy
that makes one plus one
add up to we
is beyond me
but it works
and that’s good enough.
