That’s Why

Instead of at a concert during my favorite song,

or in my favorite library,

or even in front of our friends,

we made the hike to the river,

in my flip-flops, because you said I should wear them

I made it, wheezing and angry,

because I saw you put the box in your pocket.

And that’s when I saw,

and I understood why,

even though I hate hiking,

you wanted to ask me

where I could see the most beautiful view,

because you know how much I’d love it.

That’s why I said yes.
