We met outside church,
you sang those songs you wrote with an old country twang
Susan gave you her coat
Katie and I drove you to Ingles
We talked about God and Jesus and YouTube
You bought us cookies and Coca Cola
and then we dropped you off
outside Homeward Bound.
At the time we met,
you were thinking of driving out to California,
but I’m glad you’re thinking about staying.
The world needs more people like you.
