Reunion….

It is the same song…

The same breath…..

That still lingers.

 

Words don’t come,

As they shake hands.

No smile floats….

Only a nonchalant nod.

 

Yes, I knew,

Who you were.

This new you

Vexes me…..her eyes say.

 

I know this…….

This crease on your forehead,

I know of every curve here

But this strangeness in your eyes…

This vexes me…..

She says.

 

Relax……his smile says.

 

She gives him time

To explain…….

And when he has,

She wonders of the

Mountain of memories

Embedded in her heart

Should she let it stay

Or let his presence sway

The very base of it……

 

He cannot wait, he says.

And she has her answer clear.

She carries the mountain once again

And drifts off,

Before he can say Good-bye.

 

Hands…..

He held her hand and said, “Aren’t your palms too big for a girl?”

She looked away and never answered.

“Mommy, put your big, big hand on my head, I’m sleepy”

She smiled, kissed her baby and let her big palm lay on its head…….
