Mismatched Cups

written by: Brandi Easterling Collins

As long as there
Are coffee shops
With mismatched cups,
And hometown bands
Who change the words
To their songs,
I will look behind me,
And hope to see you there.
As long as trains come
On warm summer nights
When you’ve just
Bought ice cream, and
Your grandmother
Tells you more than
You ever wanted to know
About your grandfather,
I’ll stand beside you
To protect you
From yourself and others.
As long as lovers
Get caught in storms
That end in rainbows, and
Stars fall where only
Some dare to notice,
I will honor you, and
Fight for you
With my life.
