Is what they will have together;
She believes this in her heart
Feels it every time he takes her hand
"I like this, this time with you."
She answers him with a huge grin that only he can bring forth from her
"That's good. Because I love this time with you."
They can spend the longest hours driving round and around,
Staring at buildings, sights, pointing at stars
Talking about nothing
In a way that somehow still means everything.
The pad of his thumb slips back and forth on the edge of hers
And he catches her in that stare of his,
The sparkle in his eye winning her over as easily as his smile
When he winks and asks,

Anywhere and everywhere she will go with him,
