One Mile

May 1, 2008
By Tyler Lahti, Mobile, AL

Under the oaken canopy,
Abnormally cool for April.
Alabama afternoons. The
Sun shining bright on the sidewalk.

So accustomed to walking this
Alone; so much better with you.
Just friends, yet someday something more.
The happiness within comes from

This one mile.
