I Will Remember Her

by Dike Okoro

She saved the best
For the last
Told me year round
How much I meant
To her
Updated my closet to make
Other women I love upset
She once warned me
To take her loving serious
If I wished to know how precious
The bell we both jingled
Each morning we woke up
Next to each other was
Yet she never told me
She gave her apartment key
To the postman who rings
Twice each day
To remind her she has
Good teeth
