The Coffee Shop

By Neena Grewal, TIWP Student

Have you been to the coffee shop?
Hang a left at 3rd and 4th.
It’ll be at the end of the block.
Enter and witness the wonder that life mocks.

An old man sighs, a baby cries.
In the corner, lovers kiss.
Walk in a little farther
And you will find something to always miss.

Maybe it’s a warm hug,
or freckles that practically glow.
Maybe it’s a mug of tea,
or one cuppa joe.

Either way you’ll never see
that hug, freckle or drink again.
You’ll miss it very dearly
but it was worth it in the end.

Take a seat and wait for a drink.
Watch the people move around
as they laugh, cry, and scream
and know that you yourself are set and bound
to do the exact same thing.

Have you been to the coffee shop?
Hang a left at 3rd and 4th.
It’ll be at the end of the block.
Enter and witness the wonder that life mocks.
