‘Tuesday was my perfect day, by the way,’ you told me
and I thought well that’s going to stop me
breathing for the next few seconds
and sure enough I was right.
We will look on these days with great affection.
Remember when we were in the bar talking
and the two men on the next table
stopped their conversation and were rooted to every word we said.
These are the things that happen now.
I know that when I inevitably go crazy
and take hostages
you will be out there with a megaphone.
Some days are just perfect.
They’re not always Tuesdays
But that’s the day cocktails are two for one
And that was the day when we missed our flight
you told me to jump on your back
you spread out your arms and made the plane noise
and we made it.
This is how much you mean to me.
If you got out a guitar and started singing Love is all Around at a party.
even that would be fine.
