whisper-couple

Keith:Tell the whole world that we are a couple.

Shiro:(whispers into Keith’s ear)We’re a couple.

Keith:Why did you say it to me?

Shiro:Cause your my whole world babe.

Will you hold me
amid the silence
of mind and soul;
when my heart
forgets its song,
and all is reduced
to
nothing,
and nothing more.
   
Will you then tell me
of warm
cobblestones,
feet in flowing water;
light shimmering
through green leaves
reflecting on the river;
a healing spell
cast from the heavens
reaching
the elderly couple
holding hands,
making
them young again so
they can spend their lives
together all over again.
     
Will you then whisper that
elderly couple is us?
—  Will you remind me of love?
