I was sitting by myself when I saw them entered the restaurant
I saw they held hands with wide smiles full of happiness on their faces.
They took the table next to mine.
I saw while a chair was pulled out a soft kiss in exchanged.
I saw they sat close, touching whenever possible while looking at their menus.
I saw the waiter come over to take their orders
while they playfully rubbed feet under the table.
I saw they spoke in whispers eyes gazing.
I saw they held hands while playful soft laughs were heard.
I saw a hand raised to kiss, received with a pleasing smile.
I saw them shared their meals, feeding eachother happily, contently.
I saw that they were in their own world blissfully ignoring the room.
I got up to pay my bill and smiled at them. They smiled back.
I was thinking, I’ve got to get me some of what they got.
The casher said she was sorry for what I witness.
I said I wasn’t.
I paid my bill and walked out of that restaurant.
Wondering what she thought I saw.
I saw two people sharing their lives
I saw people who were no longer suffering from loneness
I saw acceptance
I saw vulnerability in a world that’s harsh
I saw affection openly displayed
I saw peace beyond understanding
What I didn’t see were two gay people
Love is Love, what I saw was LOVE.
