One minute more

one minute more
before we shut the door
under the lilac canopy
dim patio light let me see
your tender eyes and happy smile
hold me again for just a little while
dancing we sway and my heart melts
remembering all the love we felt
as we transformed our little place
into blossoms and berries and grassy space
squirrels and their magically-appearing nuts
the home that was oft-over-flowing with Butz
goodbye bird house
goodbye little mouse
goodbye busy street
goodbye side doors
a place in our heart is forever yours
