The Red Love Seat

The days had passed
When we used to
Chill and snuggle
On that red love seat.

Fire place burning
Red wine in a sparkly glass
My head on your lap
While we whisper sweet nothings.

Oh! How wonderful those days were
But it is now time to say goodbye
To the seat
Because we need a bigger one.

We are now a famliy
And no longer
just you and I.
