In your long life you will take 247 million steps
All I ask is that you lend me just fourteen of those
One to step up to me
Then another to ground yourself for our first kiss
Ten to walk down the aisle towards me
One to pivot yourself one hundred and eighty degrees
Followed by the last
To journey away from my grave.
