Hour 18 – Prompt 18 – Table for Two

I am set as a Table for Two
Everyday, I am decorated with flair
to look my best as I welcome my guests

I have seen first love bloom
I have seen strangers click in conversations
I have seen proposals with promises of a lifetime

I have felt the presence of an invisible third
I have felt the strain of relationships breaking
I have felt the attempts at reconciliation

I have enjoyed the celebrations of a lifetime
I have experienced the anticipation of waiting
I have exulted in the joys of welcoming a child

The people I entertain changes everyday
The emotions vary within a given spectrum

I am set as a Table for Two
I have been decorated with flair
I am ready to welcome my guests today
