Tripping Over Hellos

Tripping Over Hello 2

I can’t remember exactly

when it was I quit thinking

That I had loved you…

It only became real

when I ran into you

A few years later,

And realized

That I had forgotten

what you looked like.

 

We tripped over our hellos

and then started in with the

usual how are yous?

As we were walking away,

I saw in your eyes

a  bit of sadness…

As if something

had been plucked from them.

I wondered if you were seeing

that same sadness in my eyes as well.

 

It had been a few years,  after all,

Maybe that’s just what time does to our eyes then,

Plucks out  a bit of  happiness…
