“What an Amazing Blessing Being Together Is”

Who penned the script of this movie?

Or is it comprised just of our time together?

Or maybe we are only the producers and directors

of a great audience of two?

Couldn’t it be considered something predestined,

well beyond our comprehension?

While it’s…

“When We Are Not Together”

I would like to know how you are?

Hopefully, you are as happy as I am.

I’ve noticed sadness in your voice
