Years from now, on a dull June afternoon,
I picture you, in an unknown time and place.
Sitting by a window, in world distant and new,
and for a moment at the sky you’ll gaze.
And if your mind will wander away,
through the narrow and dusty road of past.
In the memories of people and their ways,
in the moments that drifted away so fast.
In the list of regrets, dreams and hopes,
In the summing up of life’s losses and gain.
In the people you’ve hurt by the words you spoke,
in the love you gave and in return got pain.
In those crowd of memories of wrong and right,
if for a moment I pass your thought,
if for that second you miss my voice, my sight,
and see what we were, are and what we sought.
Smile at those meaningless musings and jokes,
and miss those moment of bliss, sorrow and love,
and if suddenly life drags you to reality,
and you’ll forget me till another dull noon.
That will be your biggest gift to me,
for in the life I won’t longer be a part of,
if you’ll think of me for a second or two,
and if my memory stays somewhere in you.
I will be happy in these little moments,
for you’ll be lead back to me in these thoughts.
For, these moments of reminiscence
are all that matters and all that counts.
And never forget, that in another world,
by another window, another desk,
will be a girl who’ll look at the same sky,
and gift some moments thinking of you.
