Richard Cowan Burton

Rookie (10/25/1974 / Salt Lake City UT)

Given Time


We are possibly asking,
too much from time

A simple rearrangement
to our solitary lives

Single roof, two hearts and
this proposition here

You and I with one arrangement
at the port of possibility

We know of no promise,
but a shoulder for the other

Share a breakfast, a laugh,
a warm house we return to

Given time, you and I can merge
the distance of our intent.
