The same flawless waves,
And the same curious voice I remember from those days,
The same perfect body, the same perfect pace,

We met, we loved and then there was that day,
I stood there waiting but you had to walk away.
Our eyes meet again after ages, it has been a while,
Came back the memories and a trace of that smile.
No words to say, nowhere to hide, we smile or we cry? None can decide.
A smiling spectator to this view,
see your man put a ring, again, on you.
Took me a gin and tonic and some wine and an hour,
But now had the strength, the smile and knew what to say-
“Toast to the married couple and to many a happy days!!”
I smiled, I wondered, and I whispered on my way-
“And one for the girl in glasses…… who didn’t stay…”
