They sat on the same side
Book in hand, cheeks blush mind
Eyes over the edge
Eye to meet eye
Words slowly cooked
It happend day by day
Love was the one word
Written on all books, they read

She gave it all, she had in there
Took him to the wonders
He could ever reach, on his own stair
She gifted the palace, the unicorn
The fortune’s fair
But never knew that the palace never had
A single mark of it for her, to be the share

When all done
Clock rotations made
Racks now all filled
Books lost their smell
Book in hand, they sat again
Eyes over the edge
His to meet someone else’s
Her to find the page
Guiding to take back what she once gave
