Once I walked into a house
Where a couple were sitting
Playing guitar together
Drinking a beer
Laughing about the lyrics to a song
They just made up.
I want that.

I’ve watched a couple
Walking along
Hand in hand
Not talking about anything
Just allowing the moment
To take them over
While attached
To one another
Holding on.
I want that.

She told me she was in love
And all the wonderful things
He says to her every single morning
Since the day they met.
What he says to her
Every night
Before they go to sleep.
I sighed
Because I want that.
