Favourite Things We Did


One of our favourite things we did
When we were in our small paradise home
was talking and talking and talking
As if we were afraid that we would have no other time to tell
But yes, every time we were there we had to compete with time
Every single second is precious

You talked about everything
About what is and was happening, and what had happened
In any parts of the world
You revealed your knowledge, opinions and thinking about anything
That I wondered
If there was anything in this world that you did not know
And so I asked you
You just laughed and pinched my nose

You also loved to talk about your work, your childhood, your parents and siblings
But you rarely told me about your family: wife and kids
Very small did I knew about them
And I did not want to push you
I believed, men would tell something personal to women
If they thought they needed and would like to
Otherwise they would just tell a lie
Besides very little was my knowledge about men
So I let you tell or not tell

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
