I am sorry I didn’t mean to startle you,

I just wanted to say hello,

I guess you didn’t expect

to see me out of the blue.

This face now aged which

belongs way back in your history,

take a second and see

do you remember me,

or do I still remain a mystery.

Maybe I am being foolish to

think you would never forget

that time we spent

watching the sun set.

We promised each other

that no matter what happened

we would always remain friends

even when we knew

our love was going to end.

But over the years we lost touch

when one of us realised

that our friendship

didn’t mean that much.

That’s why I thought

I would say hello and

ask how you have been,

but I can tell by your eyes

you can’t remember what

it was like to be eighteen.
