Today I walked through the local Fred Meyer
And I went a different way than usual
I walked through the Valentines Day isles
Filled with gifts and cards
All for a "special someone"
I continued to the furniture section
Where a living room displays were shown
I saw how cozy the couches looked,
But I didn't want to sit on them alone.
I went on to the giant fridges,
Where the milk is kept cold
As I opened the clear-glass doors,
And looked to the right of me
A family of 4, all voting
On what kind of cheese, tonight's dinner would need
When I picked up my milk, and placed it in my basket
Would I have someone to stand beside,
when the milk isle got too cold?
As we opened every fridge door,
Just to settle on one coffee creamer?
So we could stay on a budget
That we wrote late one evening together?
To buy a house
To build a home
To find a couch
To never be alone.
To find someone special.
For them to find me.
Even more special
Than I ever speculate I could be.
To make these everyday moments
Feel less lonely.
