What would they see

if they looked in

on themselves

just sitting there

two coffee cups

one plate half eaten

the other plate emptied

of egg and bacon

two people

Man and Woman

Woman and Man


yes but once

now Husband and Wife

and virtual strangers

usual talk

“enjoy the day” come words from him

“roast Lamb and baby new potatoes”

tonight she says

once Lovers and so in love

hands all over each other

now a kiss on cheek

eyes that barely meet

“why but why”

she asks

“must I get old”

and him she says

“I look at what he once was

now this is how it is”

from Man and Woman

to Husband and Wife

this is life?













Toots Thielemans and Diana Krall  “La vie en rose”.  So hauntingly beautiful, hope you find it so.  Anna.
