Had heard your stories from companions
But never passed a single thought
An off shore wedding united us
In a dream land away from home
Never found a person as nubile as you are
Or as comical
Or as gentle
Or as lucid
Never felt this way for years
When the fluttering of butterflies upsets the insides
When the flowing wind fails to distress the locks
When basking in his company feels like eternity.
Unmatchable was the frequency between us
Unforgettable was the exchange of glances
Ferocious were our discourses
When we were left alone to wander.
I wish we had met sooner
When you were as solitary as me
But brutal are the ways of destiny
When it kept us apart for years.
The farewell was cruel with no words exchanged
No good byes
No lingering looks
No departing pranks
A new life awaits you
And it awaits me as well
But our paths divulge
After a brief sojourn of five days…..
