We once waited for our eyes to open

Just for the chance to hear one another’s voice

Saying good morning, before starting the day

Our feet barely registering how many steps we took

In the course of our gleeful explorations

To hear the excitement in your voice when I answered the phone

Was such sweet music to my ears,  my heart skipping a beat with each word

How quickly things change and we fall into routines and patterns

Making it feel like just another appointment penciled in

Just waiting for the eraser to come along and wipe it all away

The excitement in your voice has been fading over time

Even though my heart still skips a beat
