The Bench


Come sit with me
on this autumn bench.
We can watch the ivy 
surrounding us
turn yellow and red.

And comment on the people
observing us, as they
enter and leave the shop.
Let us age with confidence;
and cling to each other
as the ivy clings to 
the brick wall behind us;
content with the present,
yet open to changes.

Confident in the future.
