When I first touched my lips to your crisp yellow can
I never foresaw our future together
But now, at 3 AM as I sip on a Bluephoria
I reflect on our time.
On the times spent in Whole Foods grabbing for the last of your can
On the times at school when I was awaken from my mid-class nap by Lemon Elation
On the times I opted out of a crappy coffee or a tasteless tea
just to have Revel Berry soothe my need for caffeine
You taught me what it means to be constantly jittery and alert
And while I may never be able to differentiate the butterflies in my stomach
Between love of Yerba or extreme caffeine-induced anxiety
It is inconsequential of my feelings for you.
So it’s quite difficult to express my cherishment,
For words are not enough to describe what can only be felt
I can already see myself 70 years in the future
Still hobbling my way into the local grocery market,
And grabbing an Enlightened Mint Yerba.
