A Final Hike

i bought a forest
— well, a piece of one
to build a cabin
it’s almost done
a one room thing
with just a bed
a place to go
and rest my head
you can come
but only you
and sleeping
will be all we do
every week
just you and me
can you imagine
how that would be?
and every year
i’ll build some more
you just name
what you wish for
and when we’re old
and it’s all done
we’ll take the hike
a final one
stay there forever
until the end
and we’ll look back
at years well spent
