POEM: I Wanted You To Know

I Wanted You To Know

I wanted you to know
I turned 50 today.
When I used to picture this day,
I imagined you with me.
We’d hug the guests goodbye,
close the door behind them,
put on some music while we
washed the dishes,
then curl up on the couch
to watch Vine compilations
until it was time for bed.
Maybe next year.
