I Saw Us Today

I saw us today
Except is wasn’t you
And it wasn’t me
But it was exactly how
I pictured us to be.
Sitting in a restaurant, when
An older couple walks in.
Holding hands across the table
He couldn’t take his eyes off her
They seemed so happy together
Like they’d been together forever
As I watched them,
My thoughts turned to you
Wishing I was holding your hand
Back when your love was true
Back when you were
The love of my life,
Back when I was your man.
And you’d eventually be my wife.
Back before you needed time and space
Now I feel like it’s your time I waste
Wishing I could hold you again
Instead I hold it all in and pretend
That I dream about us every day.
So many words I want to say.
I saw us again today
Holding hands across the table
I couldn’t take my eyes off you
I couldn’t, if I wanted to
Except is wasn’t you
And it wasn’t me
But it was exactly how
I pictured us to be…
