I Dreamt
07/12/11 – 07/12/11

I dreamt us as an old couple
With wrinkly skin
And walking a mile an hour
Hand in hand

We get to the park
And find our special bench by the pond

Fishing out of a bag
You hand me a slice of bread
And without thinking
I tear a small piece
And put it in my mouth
Only to see you give me a look
That says
"You are so silly"

Just as you gave it to me
You take away the remaining slice of bread
And place it in your lap
Tearing up little pieces and tossing them in the pond

As the tiny pieces float
Half a dozen ducks swim up for a snack

We stay on the bench
Hand in hand
Feeding the ducks
Not one word said
Yet we know
How much we love each other
