And two cups of mcdonalds coffee

Sitting under a little tree

With just enough shade

To cover them and the table

And stared at them

With their little table

Their little shade

And the mcdonalds coffee

It reminded me how happy

With the right person

Time spent together

There is something so beautiful

About elderly couples

And their love for each other

That has survived decades

Seeing them

Brings me
