It’s 2:16 p.m. right now
as I walk a dog down a busy street,
the sun shines brighter and I can’t help but think
that someone is falling in love right now.
Someone is holding their lover’s hand for the first time.
Someone is smiling.
Someone is laughing.
Someone is crying themselves to sleep,
while someone is crying tears of joy.
Someone is dying of old age
while someone is dying of laughter.
Someone is rolling up,
while someone is rolling up their sleeves.
Someone is breaking a heart, while someone is refusing to let go.
Someone is singing lyrics to a song,
while someone is getting all the words wrong.
Someone just missed the train and is running for the bus,
While someone is stuck in the highway traffic.
Someone is feeling it all,
while I’m thinking about writing it down.
