A single droplet, sparkling in the evening sun, trails down your smooth face,
I can feel thoughts swirling around in your head,
about times past,
both melancholy, and joyful,
Our eyes meet and for one,
deep, sad moment, we gaze,
until you look quickly away,
I want to say,
"don't hide your tears"
but the words just don't come,
we drop into an awkward silence,
until one final word echoes around me,
breaking the wall between us,
20 years from now, I will look back and think what a pointless post this was.
