The Bus Stop

I walked her to the bus stop.

We sat quietly together.

There was not much more to say.

Her bus came and left...

but she was still here waiting.

She looked at me and smiled.

"You’re a late bloomer" she said, laughing.

"I'll wait for you forever."

Forever.

That is a long, long time.

 

She was as good as her word.

It really wasn't all that long.

I guess I bloomed at some point.

Or she just decided I did.

We roamed the world and

lived beyond the fences.

We grew our own expectations.

We walked along together.

Forever.

On the beach, at sunset.
