Saving My Laptop

If I only had time to grab one physical object and save it from destruction,

It would be you;

Old friend;

Your keyboard is worn to invisibility;

It takes you longer to start up than  it does for my coffee to boil;

Your electronic seizures have become more and more frequent;

And your battery barely holds a charge;

Somewhere in your electric brain, do you think;

“Would she leave me behind?”

Give me more credit than that!

Without you, I could not have written a word for the last five years;

The highs and the lows, the victories and the defeats, the wins and the losses;

Have all been played out on your keys and on your screen;

Since you stuck with me, old friend, I’m sticking with you;

No matter what disasters may come.
