Christine, this is a great poem! You've mixed the ordinary, everyday routines into the essence of life!! This is now my favorite Christine poem!!

p.s. if Terry didn't take so many naps he could write more songs!!

A poem poignant and rich with meaningful analogy. ^_^ It reminds me: time, with its passing, can stretch the 'distance' between people all too familiar with each other. *wistful sigh*

Andrew, thanks!

Pat, I'm glad you like this one. I'll have to go wake Terry up and tell him you want him to stop napping!

Soulless, what a lovely read of this poem. Thank you for giving that to me.

Ruthanne, I'm glad you liked it.
