The last hurrah. Wake up and drag weary feet to the kitchen without the laborious ache of everyday being. No scathing tension from the night before. Because today is the last hurrah. Today say goodbye. Together produce the final meal composed of favorites. Eggs bacon toast granola and fresh squeezed orange juice. Sit in warm silence where no words are necessary because a point of comfort has been attained. Recognize that the wanting is not the needing. So the clearing of plates. A cup of coffee. Stare at each other. Gaze out the window. Notice the blossoming pine tree. And a sparrow.

{Also this might just be the best song of twenty-ten}
