Maybe

Maybe there’ll be a moment

when we lie in bed and say

this is all we ever wanted

here, now, today

 

and maybe, when it’s over,

it will prove enough to last

long into the future

deep into the past

 

so that maybe, lean years later,

lovers will gaze at us and say

that’s all we ever wanted

here, now, today . . .
