These Timeless Gifts

The days we have
The days we’ve had
The bit of dander
Your cat left on the futon

The headaches from laughing
Laughing too hard
The way the words run together
When we’re trying to get them out

The way we’ve managed to stay
How connected we’ve kept things
The words we’ve invented
You just humor me

The way we both know
That time is a gift
A bit of fluff here and there
Lint all over the place

The days are getting colder
One day, there will be snow
And we’ll wonder how
we are timeless still
