OLD TIMERS

My grandparents
are getting old.
They stopped sleeping
in the same bed
a long time ago.
Now they don't even sleep
in the same room.
I don't know
if they are still in love
or if they
ever were.
Each morning
whoever wakes up first
gets out of bed
and shuffles across the house
to see if the other
is still alive,
before starting the
coffee.
