listen, mate

I will walk again, I will rise up higher and stronger than before. Faith will get me through, I will survive and more. Just me and my faith, mate.

I sat under a wee tree and sulked, there was no one there. No one watching. Just me and a giant sulk.

I sat across the kitchen table from you as you told me how it was to be and I listened. No chance of reply. Just me listening to you.

We stood in an office and spoke our vows. No family present. Just you and me and three strangers hearing the words “I do.”

We sat on a blanket with a picnic, loving, laughing and chatting, we listened to each other. Just us in love.

We met in the park, playing swings, full of bravado and fun. A bunch of us messing. Just a gang of kids having fun.
