Give me moments

by DBLevin

she met him in a grocery store
she’d never seen his face before
she didn’t even know his name
even so she loved him all the same
even so she loved him all the same

she went to school, saw no one else
she asked herself, if he was worth it
nonetheless she watched him everyday
nonetheless she watched him everyday

he moved into the house nextdoor
in the kitchen, on the floor
she said hello and he replied
I have never seen your face before
why’ve I never seen your face before

over coffee, in the park
they talked like they never had before
eyes making love, je t’adore
she said that she hoped it would never end
she said that she hoped it would never end

off to college, bodies spent
questioning if this was meant
to last longer than their feelings could
to last longer than their feelings would

two thousand miles away, he said to her
we’re not in the backyard, anymore
let’s move on, we’ve got all life to learn
let’s move on we’ve got all life to learn

back on the playground, in the store
she wondered what it all was for
where does the time go she wants to know
where does the time go she wants to know

finally, it’s time to die
she’s prepared to say goodbye
she wishes he would be right by her side
she wishes he would be right by her side

memories, on the wind
he sits thinking ’bout her still
suddenly the world seems awfully still
suddenly the world seems awfully still.
