We sit across from each other
your eyes never leave my face
looking for the mystery to be unlocked
why are we here, what is this place?
I cannot help your confusion
though I understand it better than most
we have been here before, you know
for birthdays, for eggs and toast.
We will keep returning, time after time
even though you no longer know my name
the familiar tablecloth, the glassware is the same.
