Bittersweet Gift
By Zero

+++

The first steps are so awkward
A smile here, hello sometimes
And remember to laugh at the jokes
Trying to impress gets so tiring

When the two of you part ways
You just wonder, wonder, wonder
What makes this stranger tick
And does he wonder about me?

Soon the wondering turns to questions
And the lies turn to truth
And the truth turns to a deeper history
Meaning is found, along with a friend

One of those late nights
The ones you've come to look forward to
Life has a meaning and time goes too fast
That feeling of flying that friends seem to give

One of those nights under a waning moon
Lock eyes and draw a drink of his breath
Because the universe has big plans for you
This can't last forever.
