One Step

One step
Two step
Three step
Four

How many steps
To count before I
Reach your heart’s
Front door

Open wide
Come inside
Is there a welcome mat
For me?

Is there a couch that
We can climb into
Build a fort for two
Sprawl out underneath

Is there a backyard
With a swing
Mind if I have a tent
To bring?

Talk about the things
We love
Reminisce about
Our future
While we dance
Beneath the stars

Build a fire

Roll around in
Blades of grass
Beneath the moon
Jump into the pool
In our birthday suits
Play Marco Polo
Find the love fool
I can feel your heartbeat
Pulsing through
The ripples
Splashing
Up and down
You need not make
A sound

Is there a bed upstairs
We can roll around in
Where sheets end up
On the floor
The morning after
So much laughter
We shake the walls

And as the sun
Comes up
I stroke your head
We pull ourselves
Out of the bed
That will not let us go
Entangled in your legs
I adore the memories we
Reflect on especially
Over eggs
