Hello There!

My name is Matt Cambridge. I started this blog in 2016 when I moved back to the US after living abroad for two years and discovered a passion for writing. Here you’ll find monthly posts about my life: Work. Marriage. Parenting. Triumph. Failure. If reading my work helps you to laugh, cry, and think, I’ll be happy. You can read more of my work monthly at the post calvin.

You Aren't Another To-Do List: A Poem

You Aren't Another To-Do List: A Poem

Now that you’re here

time seems to slip away

and I want to shout, or whisper

slower, slower, slower

to be sure I’m taking it all in

to be sure I don’t miss a thing

 

I want to hold your hand and

ride roller coasters and

climb mountains and

go sky diving and

Dance

with you

but then I realize you aren’t another

to-do list

for me to accomplish

but rather, an epic journey

that we’re on together

so I solemnly swear

that instead

I’ll just be present and

enjoy the ride and

enjoy you.
