Bench Warmers

Shall I talk about the strangers? 

A man once sat here 

With a woman by his side  

They sat in silence 

Until he said upon her, 

"I love you more than the moon loves the star that makes it shine" 

And she said nothing, 

But gave him a heartfelt smile. 

 

Shall I mention the kiss? 

A couple once sat here 

So smitten was she 

He, bewildered by her beauty, 

He said to her gently, 

"I love you more than the moon loves the star that makes it shine" 

She leaned over to kiss him, 

He kissed her back. 

 

Shall I tell what this bench is for? 

A lonely man once sat here 

And sipped on the fruitful juice of life 

He realized a plaque on his back 

Which said, 

"I love you more than the moon loves the star that makes it shine, 

From an old man to his lovely wife" 

And the man on the bench gave a light chuckle 

But then looked over and 

No longer saw the other said smile.  

At the bench on the right a man sat with his wife, 

And the man on the bench envied the other man's beautiful living wife.
