Home to Stay
By: Alli Robinson
Inspired by Josh Groban's 'Home to Stay'
I remember when you and I would go down to the shore. We would hold hands and walk along the edge of the water of the island. We would talk about what the future might hold.
I remember when we would drive into the town. We would go to a nice dinner and feed each other our own food. We would talk about what we would want to do in that future together.
I remember when we would be staring at one of your artworks. We would sit there and watch as it came to life in our minds. We would talk about what our future would be if we were in that piece of art.
I remember when we would give each other the silent treatment after I told you about the army. We would look at each other as if we were strangers. We would bicker about how the future would be affected if something happened.
I remember when we stood there, waiting for the bus to pick me up.
