i’m not sure if i like
tea or coffee
fruits or vegetables
cats or dogs
math or reading
running or sitting
tears or laughter
gloves or mittens
boys or girls
snow or sunshine
dawn or dusk
stop telling me
i have to choose

i know i enjoy
the sun and the moon
the start and the end
the hunger and the fulfillment
and your steps next to mine

i learned these things like i learned
english
humor
cooking
writing
knitting
step by step
carefully
achingly
enduring

like the coffee grinds in my cupboard and the tea box on the counter
i learned to love all these things patiently and i found them sweetly fufilling

but i had to know them first before i could know you
