What lays ahead?

She would smile if she could move her lips
He would too
He would take her hand if he could reach
She would too
She would take on all his sorrows if she could hear them
He would let her
He would open up if she could just sit still
She would too
But she can’t make her lips move, hold his hand out of reach
Understand his sorrows if he refuses speech
He can’t force her lips to a smile, take her for a walk
Make her sit still for even just a while
And so they remain in a world of conditional circumstances
Where every could and would never turns into the can and will so deeply sought after
For a future together
She should fight
He should too
But will they?
