They would have been –
Airline pilots and plumbers.
Filmakers, chefs, fireman and dancers.
They should have become-
BFF’s and frenemies.
They should have –
Seen the end of this millenium.
Felt the elation of a first kiss.
Tasted the salty tears of success.
Heard the music of a father/daughter dance.
Inhaled the sweetness of a carnation pinned to a wrist.
They should have.
But what they have done
Is touched our hearts
