Marathon Anniversary

What would I need to do
to make you stay?
Make a commitment
to another twelve…
I look back upon
our experiences together.
They say time makes you forget
the bad, remember
only the good.
I say – it’s still all too fresh.
I’ll finish us now.
Downsize. Compartmentalize.
Reconsider a year from now
whether or not
it was worth it.
Whether or not
I want to give it another go.
We made it through twice
so chances are pretty good
the theory is correct.
I will remember
what will make me
do it again next year.
With you.
