Baby I Love You Poem


Would you have dinner?

                                                     by BJ Mountrey

Would you have dinner?


It was heartbreaking to watch him lose himself

slowly over several years.

Oddly, he remembered that

I was a person who loved him

and whom he loved;

when I went to visit him

—almost daily—

he would reach out his arms and

lift his face to kiss me.


One afternoon,

"Would you do me the honor of having dinner with me tonight?"

Playing along, I said, "I'd be delighted!"

Then I asked, "Do you know who I am?"

"No,” he said, “but you seem to be a very sweet person,

and I'd like to get to know you!"


Talk about laughing and crying at once.

Yet it was comforting to know that he still liked me.
