“I really hope we get to sit down together,
And stare across at each other,
As she tells me everything she wants to say”,
His thoughts crowd him,
As the steam rises off his coffee in the chilled cafe,
Plain brown tables stood between them,
And what felt like an eternity existed in each breath,
As her playful joy danced around the room,
A dream is all he had to hold as his own.
Frozen by the weather,
And a fear to speak the truth,
This man so full of love,
Sat alone.
