Fair to middlin'
I want to lay in your arms for an afternoon,
just to feel you safe and close to me.
Maybe we’d lay outside on a sunny autumn day
and make shapes in the clouds overhead.
Breathing easy with all worries aside,
we’d make small talk between I love you’s.
Perhaps we would fall into a fit of silly
and laugh until we’re in tears.
We might just fall asleep dreaming
the dreams of lovers and wake up in a cuddle.
I want a little you and me time
with no distractions or time schedules
so we can just be you and me
the way I like us to be.
