Table for Two

Is the table set for two? 
I’ve been alone for far too long 
so 
if my glances fall your way 
I’m searching for words to say 

I’ve been broken, beaten, 
crushed, and lied to even 
My heart is heavy from the scars I wear 
but 

If you’re going to meet my gaze 
I’m going to raise my glass. 

I can’t ask you not to 
You can’t promise me you 
won’t change your mind 
as time moves on 
but 

At this table 
set for two 
I’m grateful to dine with you.
