Chris and I went out awhile back.
It didn't work--I really don't know why.
Some unacknowledged dream was out of whack,
Went spinning off, and so we let it die.
Sometimes we attribute things to fate
When it's us, though we won't notice it.
Chris and I are back again--it's great!
We've both changed, and now we seem to fit.
I can't explain the happiness I find:
Chris smiles at me and something makes me glow.
Mysteries on mysteries unwind;
The deeper in we see, the less we know.
For now I think I'll just enjoy the ride;
Love Chris to bits, but still keep watch inside.
