What We Have

Standard

.
Sometimes,
I wish
I had
what they have with you,
but then I remember
I’m special.
I’m different
and they don’t have
what you have with me
and that many wish
they had what you have with me
and what I have with you.
Sometimes,
I’m sure you wish
you had
what others have with me,
but you know
you’re special.
You’re different
and you remember
that no one
will ever have
what I have with you.
I think, at times,
we both wish
we had
what others have with each other,
but then we remember
we’re special.
We’re different
and so is everything
we have together.
