Pitiful, Just Plain Pitiful

The honeymooners ebulliently chat
having breakfast in an Inn’s café
spying a geriatric couple in another booth
eating in silence
never glancing the other’s way
newlyweds replete with optimistic youth
say “we’ll never become like that…
we’ll love each other come what may”

Fast forward 29 years
middle-aged man sits alone
having breakfast in an Inn’s café
digesting thoughts of regret and fears
remembers the aged, stoic pair
viewing their state in a different way
however dispassionate they appeared
at the very least they had someone there

Can I do sad? Yeah, I can do sad. Sorry for the downer more than loosely based on reality.
