Eyes on announcement screen, keeping track of incoming flights;
Her heart was pounding with so many doubts!
She was a teeny girl; when he left for better & good,
Keeping it alive over internet & good old notes.
Fidgeting in alien shoes; not so familiar grace & lady’s etiquette.
Her mind was plagued with many questions – remembering old times & place.
It was summer time in mountains, when they disparate.
Her eyes always searched for him; his arms and embrace.
Today, after a decade they will meet – a gap so big, as new!
Would he recognize me or hold me again! the way he used to in old times?
Terminal announced the arrival; her eyes were cheating to give in.
Holding it together; checking her dress & RED carnations.
She can see a familiar face; with hearty smile & pepper salt hair;
He looks just the same, a little old maybe but never-mind!
but then, another face crops from behind; clutching his hand tight,
She has his eyes, smile & the HAND! ‘One I missed my whole life.’
He looked at her, smiled and waved!
Too numb to react, meekly moved her feet – to meet him & his!
The TERMINAL was chaotic, full to capacity..
But she felt alone, exposed and cheated by life & her own!
