There’s Never Enough Time

Days chill and nights freeze
but, darling, I’m with you
sharing common needs,
thoughts and deeds which
warm my heart with love for you.
Soon we will journey together
heading west for the winter
and finding new adventure
for three months or perhaps only two.
It’s our first trip without the lab
to keep us company and make us laugh
and for some of the way we will be sad.
He proved us wrong about the math.
He was older than we thought.
We thought we had three more
years or perhaps only two,
but two would have been fine
except when he started to run out of time.
Then we would want three more years
or maybe just two.
Even two would do
until we started to run out of time.
