It’s been so long since I was two
I’ve forgotten exactly what couples do.
Hold hands in bed?
Watch the other one poo?
I really don’t know what couples do.
Do they talk all night?
Is their love still true?
Now it’s all so different,
I wish I knew,
The kinds of things that couples do.
Do they spend their Saturdays in the park?
Do they cuddle closely in the dark?
Do they still snuggle and coo
Like I used to?
Now I’ve no idea what couples do.
Spend their last red cent
Showing all that they’ve meant
To each other all of their years?
Do they know how they’re feeling?
Pray together while kneeling?
Do they still wipe away their tears?
Do couples still do what couples did
When each one was just one?
Or are coupling folk
Of which I’ve spoke
Now just one without a sum?
I’d like to know what couples do
Because one day it may be,
That again I become one
With another someone
And getting it right is important to me.
