I want what you have.
The way your husband looks at you
with adoration
admiration
affection
joy
pride.
I want what you have
four family members on a Christmas card
all together
intact.
I want what you have
wedding albums of family and friends
the same man standing next to you
as the one in the picture.
I want what you have
a man who will get out of his chair
and attend to childish needs
while you sip on your wine
and eat olives.
I want what you have
a man who appears
with a mojito in his hand
as you tread in the door.
I want what you have
the light in his eyes
and yours
the exchange of glances
at a fifteen year old inside joke
made on your honeymoon.
