Afternoon Tea

Remember those things you used to do
before there was a me and you?
Those things made you who you were.
Don’t think that just because we’re together
what once was has to change.
You don’t need to rearrange.
Remember days out with your friends,
drinking coffee, laughing till you’re round the bend?
None of that has to end.
And please don’t worry about me.
I’m strong enough to see.
And I need my alone time sometimes too.
It doesn’t mean I don’t love you.
When opportunity comes to call,
take the bull by the horns;
jump right in and have a ball.
And if you find you’ve a prior appointment,
don’t see it as a disappointment.
Weigh up your options.
What’s a once-in-a-lifetime meeting
compared to a regular monthly seating?
I don’t want to be the excuse you make.
I don’t want to feel that I have taken
your freedom away.
So what do you say?
I hope it’s a hearty “yes”,
so you can be your very best
with no regrets.
I’ll be here when you come home,
still loving you.

  1. I love this one! So many couples go through so many different versions of this. Some friends never leave the house unless it’s together. Some friends go out so much that they hardly meet each other in the house where they’re living together.

    I’m lucky, my boyfriend and I seem to have the same outlook on this challenge. He likes to go out alone, and I like to go out alone. And both of us like to go out together and stay in together. We have a lot of options to choose from 🙂
