  He sees her across the way.
"I'll find the courage" he thinks, "someday".
A sudden glance or a simple smile
Lets him know its worth the while.
He never thought love would find h im here.
In this place where he finds no fear.
He searches for the words to say,
When suddenly, she is pushed his way.
The aide behind her gives a wink.
"O, he's so handsome" to herself she thinks.
She wheels up beside his chair,
For this meal, those two will share.

This is so beautiful and sweet.Just because people grow old on the outside doesn't mean their hearts can't fill with new love on the inside. I really liked this.
