Too busy making plans right now.
There will come a day when little things will be vocalized like they’re a big deal
Like telling the other that the fireplace needs new wood
Or asking if the grass is cut, or what time a regularly watched TV show will air.
Two elderly couple, friends with each other.
When one’s gone,
There will be aloneness while sitting on a rock, looking at some man-made pond near the nursing home. That will be the highlight of the day.
Too busy making plans right now,
There’ll be a day when little things will mean everything.
