Lovely Little Memory



I wonder what life will make of us
Sitting in that little dingy corner
Playing with pretty point filled phrases
As our sleep heads a wander

Alternating words and yawns
As we almost fall asleep
Wondering what the world will make
Of simply you and me
Wondering if our souls can take
The day that I have to leave
Wondering if my hands will shake
When I let go of what I see
But
You will still be pretty
In my lovely little memory
Pointless pieces that we'd talk
What pieces did you keep?
In that little dingy corner
That made my life more green
Staying up past the latest late
As we try our best to breathe.
