Our Choice


Two strangers meet

For the first time

Amidst the noise

To make a choice.


They could decide

To sail away

Like a big shot

In a great yacht.


Memories make

To last a life

A treasure trove

Perhaps of love


A poem a day

He promised her

She could come back

With quite a stack.


He wants to know

If she’s to trust

She wants to know

If he’s her beau.


They could forego

Their bucket list

They could just deem

Who needs a dream?




They could just work

They could go on

With daily life

The usual strife.


When life is done

We won’t regret

The things we’ve done

But those we shun.


When days are gone

We won’t look back

And ask, done for

Did we work more?


No, we will wish

We’d given love

A chance in full

Not just kind of.


And looking back

We’ll wish we’d had

That week, we’ll wish

We could backtrack.


And so today

Let’s take a chance

Let’s choose to dance

Let’s pick romance.
