Laughter, holding hands and melting chocolate. We walked together, comfortable, sweet. Fleeting moments gathered together and held near. These are what we live for. Hugs from people we barely know anymore, sharing, talking, living. Leaving them behind to walk further along, arms swinging, intertwined. Sitting on that low stone wall, teasing and flirting. Hugging, listening. This is what I wait for, this little moment. Capture it, cherish it. This is what life is made for.

The author's comments:
This was inspired by an afternoon down town St. Paul, meeting up with old friends and feeling content in my own world.
