One by One

She was full of fire,

He could douse the flames

They both abound, all over town,

 Still playing their silly games

 

They met as people do

She smiled while he said hello you

They danced the night, while holding tight

To one plus one makes two

 

They met again that week,

Still tap tapping their feet

One look of the eyes and with no surprise

They both said I do

 

With the ring came harder choices

They’ve only known their own voices

But one plus one doesn’t mean a ton

With no cause to rejoice

 

So they made a solemn vow

To always live for the now

Against all odds, they both took jobs

And neither disavowed

 

They live their simple joy

That fire girl and water boy

Working through the day

So each night they can tap tap away
