Remember when the kids were little and they went to bed, like at a bed time?

Sometimes you’d sneak out to the video store and get us a movie, stop by Dairy Queen and get us a blizzard to share. By the time you got home, I was usually done settling everyone in, nursing the baby to sleep, ready to chill. We’d sit next to each other, hold hands, snuggle up.

Am I remembering this right? Video stores and ice cream?

It was so cozy then.
It was true then.
It was real love then.
I think.

Video stores are gone
and love is too
So it’s hard
to trust my memory
