Full of Love

A boy whose cheeks are still soft and plump
Who cuts out candy heart stickers in the shape of guitar picks
Who tries so hard and is so bright
Who loves me and Taso unconditionally.
(Valentines day cards for his class.)

A man with long, slender fingers, flat palms and a firm grip
With impeccable taste and the right amount of cool
Who doesn't yell and makes me laugh daily 
Who asked the boy and I to be his forever. 

Friends picked out by fate and natural selection
Aging rockstars with bills to pay, spread across the country
Who remind me every time I see them of the good in the world
Who will still want to party with me when we are 100 years old.

A pack of blessings light upon my back this Valentines Day.
