I want us laughing over spilt coffee
Shuffling through a deck of cards
With our legs crossed.
I want that piece of sky
When last night becomes tomorrow morning
And our clothes try to hide
What we made in our memory.
I want our feet to cross over
The places that threatened our freedom.
I want the clock hands to get stuck
So we have more time to spend.
I want the papers and messages to cease
The overwhelming deadlines
So I can talk to you at night.
I want something to hold onto.
Like the days we take time to go for a drive,
Or when you take my hand and smile.
I want those days, and I want more nights—
I want us to remember the meaning of together.
That’s all I want.
