When

Posted on Aug 1, 2020 in Thoughts

I lived in the converted garage
and you in the bamboo shack out back
When we had nothing

I scrubbed mold off the walls for rent
and you tended the weeds and seeds of the garden
When we had nothing

We foraged the neighbor trees for food
and you baked banana bread for our ohana
When we had nothing 

We laid in bed and tracked ants on the wall
hand cracked mac nuts on the patio
WiFi was scarce and so to pass the time
we touched and laughed and talked
When we had nothing 

That’s when I fell in love with you
Remember that time?
When we had everything
