Year of Yes

I wish I had said Yes!
When you asked me out to walk
among the leaves
the turning leaves
You were offering me
the sound of dreams,
And I turned you down

Not today, I smiled
Maybe, tomorrow?

But I wish I had said Yes!
I wish we had shared this light.

Next time don't ask
Just take me!
Order me to dress!

I am going to need your help
To begin the Year of Yes.

I can so relate to this. Reminds me of my early days of parenting.

This makes me think of my mother who was so busy cleaning that she refused my dad's invitations to go different places during the day. It's a beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing it.
