~a Tender Moment At The Supermarket~

Sitting there watching them
they had no idea
they were such an inspiration
so comfortable with eachother.

He, at least 85
she, about the same.
From my car I could see
the way he worried about her
as he pulled his car up to the door
so she wouldn't get wet.
He tenderly watched
while she tucked her hair
under her clear rain bonnet.

The rain was barely a trickle
but it was a cold rain
and he wouldn't have her
catching a chill.
She waited
just inside the door
while he parked the car
a sky blue 1976 Bonneville.
They probably bought it
brand new.

His steps were slow
and purposeful.
I could tell he hurt
but was trying to still
be the ''protector''
of his beautiful bride.

They walked into the store
arm in arm
while I sat for a few more minutes
alone in my car
listening to the whish-whish
of my wipers.

This brought a tear to my eyes... we should all be so lucky to have this when we get to that age. What a touching story.... you've stopped to smell the roses for us, captured that moment perfectly in your words.... ~~Lee

Heartwarming and beautiful indeed. Looking on at others' love always induces the feeling of loneliness so perfectly hinted at in the end of this piece.

This is a very fragile piece Mary. If you took one word out, it seems that the whole poem would fall apart. A tender piece with a lovely, dreamy flow to it.
