Overheard at Table 3: When the World Goes Dark

I knew your mother was the one.
The one for me, y'know, the night,
some night, when I was taking her home
from the movies, and we're halfway home
and I don't remember if we were sitting at
a stoplight or just driving down the road,
but she suddenly took my hand, and she
held it in hers and she said,

"This is the hand that
I will be holding
when the world goes dark."
